News from the Quiggs
Summer has arrived and we're a few days away from heading off to Denmark for the holidays - looking forward to it! Thank you to everyone who turned up during our tour of the Netherlands and Germany in May, it was great to see old friends and meet new ones. June was a busy month also with the festival weekend in Keith and folk club gigs in Scotland and England. In August we'll be back in Scotland with festival gigs at the Edinburgh Fringe, Marymass folk festival in Irvine and other folk club gigs so plenty to look forward to. The concerts are listed on the gigs page and regularly updated.
We have been through at Ian McCalman's Kevock Digital Studio to listen to the tracks as we had almost forgotten what we had recorded... So far so good, we were happy with what we heard and hope to have the new album out in the autumn!
We haven't added much new stuff recently to the bandcamp page but we're getting a few visitors and it would be great if you would follow us and download our music (it is worth mentioning that if you like to download your music and support the artists in the best way possible we would ask you to use bandcamp) We will continue to add to the list of albums and tracks available for download on bandcamp so if you would like to be notified just click this link to follow us.
PernillePrints is the page where you'll find original handprinted linocuts made by Pernille. Several are printed as limited editions and all are unique as each print is burnished by hand.
