The endearing 4 piece band, ColvinQuarmby play "refreshingly different acoustic music" and feature the mighty song writing talents of charismatic front man Gerry Colvin. Growing favourites on the Folk/Acoustic circuit, the live show is spontaneous - unpredictable, often hilarious and always hugely entertaining ... A potent mix of driving rhythm laced with liberal helpings of folk, country and skiffle, topped off with irresistible harmonies and lyrics of pure poetry and subtle wit. Think Beatles, ...think Beautiful South. Catchy, melodic songs are crafted with incredibly evocative lyrics which can touch the soul in a most powerful way, from heart-breaking acoustic ballads and foot-tapping country rhythms, to full blown folk-rock anthems.
Featuring Dave Dutfield (Racing Cars / Ralph McTell) on Guitars and Backing Vocals, Martin Fitzgibbon (Miranda Sykes Band) on Drums and Backing Vocals and Founder member Nick Quarmby (Phil Beer Band) providing Bass, Acoustic Guitar and Backing Vocals.
