COLVINQUARMY are to open the 2013 Rugby roots season.

The band - Gerry Colvin (acoustic guitar) Nick Quarmby (bass) Martin Fitzgibbon (drums) Allen Maslen (guitar) and Marion Fleetwood (fiddle/cello/) - play Lawrence Sheriff School in Rugby on Saturday March 9.

They have established a reputation as one of the best live acts on the roots circuit, and have played at some of the biggest festivals in the country. In 2009 they were voted second best act at the Cropredy festival - second only to the mighty Richard Thompson and ahead of Seth Lakeman.

Colvin’s songs have an unmistakable English lyrical content, combining witty observations of the ordinary and occasionally mundane aspects of everyday life, with sweet melodies.

They will be supported on the night by the young Norfolk based singer-songwriter Jess Morgan who is steadily building a name for herself in roots and folk music, with songs peppered with influence from both her Welsh and English heritage

Richard Barnes of Rugby Roots said: “ColvinQuarmby are old friends of ours and we always look forward to their concerts here, their music defies categorisation, it’s original, superbly crafted songs reflecting the ups, the downs and the absurdities of everyday life, with fine musicianship, five piece harmonies to die for, and a totally unique performing style.

"Jess Morgan is a superb young singer-songwriter with a repertoire of fine songs and a delightfully quirky style, she’s the perfect opening act for CQ and we think this will be a great show."

Tickets are £12 and available by calling 01788 567338 or online at rugbyroots.com with some some available on the night from 7.15pm.
