Matt Quinn - The Village Folk Club

The Village Folk Club in Manchester continues to attract top line talent as Matt Quinn pays a visit.

Matt Quinn is fast becoming a well-known name on the English folk scene. He has performed at a wide range of venues from folk clubs across the country up to main stages at Sidmouth, Beverley, Warwick, and Broadstairs festivals in one guise or another, whether solo or with a band.

Most recently, he has been seen playing with English and Turkish fusion folk band Dogan & the Boomboxkaravan, with BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award finalist Dogan Mehmet, in the English ceilidh band The New Slide, and in the Eliza Carthy Ceilidh Band with their themed ceilidhs at Sidmouth Folk Festival, Whitby Folk Week and at the South Bank Centre in London.

His delivery of traditional songs ranges from epic ballads to comic songs to hearty chorus songs. He also has a natty line in traditional and contemporary tunes on the melodeon.
