Close Quarters

 £7 (£6 Mem)


Sandra & Steve Harrison started singing with Judith & husband Pete Gleave in the early 80's. Known as Quartz, they appeared at festivals and clubs around the country. Now with Jen Wilson their sound has regained its fullness and the repertoire has songs from here and now as well as back in the original repertoire. Harmonies & choruses aplenty.


The Deportees, originally booked for this evening, are unfortunately unable to appear.


Supported by locally-based American singer Dan Benatan. Dan leans strongly toward folk/rock with Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and Jim Croce significant influences.
