News from the Quiggs
We've entered the month of June and have had a little taste of summer but hoping for more sunny days to come. With regards to 'live' gigs we're not much further on. There seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel, as Stephen had done a few solo gigs in hotels, however the agency based in England found that 'live' entertainment is still against the law in Scotland and so all future bookings were cancelled... so we go on hoping.
We have started looking to 2022 in that we're rescheduling concerts we were meant to do this year or last and we're looking for new bookings and trying to plan a few tours, if you have anywhere in mind do get in touch.
The Quiggs' bandcamp page is doing well and we're getting a few visitors, it would be great if you could have a look and if you like 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.
A new page has been added to this website under PernillePrints here you will find original handprinted linocuts made by Pernille. Several are printed as limited editions and all are unique as each print is burnished by hand.
Online Concerts with The Quiggs:
The next online Live Concert set with The Quiggs on Music From Scotland Facebook page will take place on the 15th of June 19.30 pm.
We are also appearing online at the Keith Festival this year, on Saturday the 12th of June on their facebook page/youtube and doing a set for Acoustic Nights online which will premier on youtube on the 25th June.

As you may have noticed on the homepage and the gigs page there's now also a link to Bandsintown where you can follow us and be notified about any upcoming events...we try our best to keep up with technology ;-)
It has been very encouraging to see the great response to the Quiggs CD "Wings of Gold" and that it's getting airplay on BBC Radio Scotland and lots of local radio stations and many enthusiastic comments from those who have already bought it.
The CD is available to buy through the link PayPal.me/quiggsfolkduo The CD is £10 in the Uk and £13.50 for the rest of the world (postage included.)
