Three of the UK’s most celebrated folk and jazz musicians come together to create mesmerising, lyrical chamber music

Quercus brings together three of the UK’s most creative, multi award winning musicians to create exquisite chamber music that weaves together the essence of folk and jazz. Drawing on their life’s work including original compositions, traditional folk songs and reclaimed standards, Quercus subtly colours each song to create a magical atmosphere.

Two time winner of the BBC Folk Awards Singer of the Year, June Tabor rose to fame in the mid ‘70’s and has maintained a high profile career ever since, working with the likes of Maddy Prior and the Oyster Band amongst many others. Listed in the BBC’s 100 Jazz Legends, Iain Ballamy is one of the UK’s most widely celebrated jazz musicians and composers, enjoying an international career stretching from Scandinavia to India. Welsh pianist Huw Warren’s distinctive and enticing music has led to collaborations with Maria Pia de Vito, Mark Feldman and Erik Truffaz. Together they create beautifully poignant music that forges June’s intensely passionate voice with Iain’s gloriously mellifluous melodies and Huw’s off-kilter musicality, to tell of life’s bittersweet tales.

This concert is part of the 2017/18 concert series at the School of Music.
