Quo & Fish – Contemporary Folk Duo
Thursday 4th April 2024
Pay What You Can £5-£13
Rob Quo & Pearl Fish are two songwriters with distinct voices who blend their meandering, folky musings to create a unique, captivating contemporary roots duo.
Rob was born and raised in a small village in the rural midlands of England and moved to pursue a career as a musician in London as soon as he was of age. Pearl, hailing from Peckham, grew up in the multicultural heart of South London and lives now on the waterways North of the river. From these quite opposite backgrounds, they met on London’s burgeoning Folk scene. A mutual respect was quickly formed, and they soon began sitting with one another, developing a musical chemistry that would form the foundation of their sound.
Featuring plenty of vocal harmonies, with accompaniment on acoustic guitars, shruti box and percussion, their songs meander from pensive & melancholic to light-hearted and humorous and take in the full breadth of subject matter from mothers, lovers and birds. Between them, they have played up and down the country and abroad, taking in shows at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Glasgow’s King Tut’s. After an extensive UK tour last Autumn, Quo Fish are back on the road with new arrangements and new material to share.
