Joy Strachan-Brain from Quill

First published in

WITH their strong vocal harmonies, accompanied by the artistry of violin and guitar, Quill have been a part of the Midlands music scene for more than 30 years.

When one of their founder members, Ben Brain, died suddenly in April 2012, his wife and lead singer Joy Strachan-Brain nearly decided to call it a day.

But with the support of their loyal fans, they are now back on the road with a new show which includes additional guest artists and musicians.

Among the line-up at their show on August 2 at Bromsgrove's Artrix is local legend Bev Bevan, formerly of The Move.

Throughout the show Quill will perform songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s right up to the present day, playing Fleetwood Mac-style rock, and a set list of superb timeless classics, intermixed with brand new original material, some of it written by Ben.

Audiences can look forward to an evening of perfectly performed show stoppers.

Quill are performing at the Artrix on Saturday, August 2 starting at 8pm.

Tickets cost £15 and are available from the box office on 01527 577330 or artrix.co.uk.
