Quercus: June Tabor | Iain Ballamy | Huw Warren
June Tabor voice
Iain Ballamy soprano and tenor saxophones
Huw Warren piano
Quercus brought together three of the UK’s most celebrated folk and jazz 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.
‘June Tabor is the dark-voiced queen of folk, Iain Ballamy and Huw Warren are adventurous improvisers. But the fusion is magical here as the pair’s subtle embellishments accentuate the force of Tabor’s austere yet soulful delivery’ The Times
