|Bostin' Bromsgrove: Quill ...|
Yours Truly KJS has seen Quill transform over the few years in which elobeatlesforever (elobf) have covered their concerts. From a notable pub in Wolverley to Birmingham Symphony Hall and through the odd change in personnel, Quill are still quintessentially Quill with the effervescent Joy leading her sextet through a merry dance that now includes a much larger proportion of their own material as they continue to reinvent themselves. Their latest performance was no different as we were treated to two  new songs in "Pretty Ribbons" and "Perfect Skin" as well as a revamped "Nine Mile Camp". If they were proverbial scene stealers, then an inspired vocal rendition of Stevie Winwood's "Can't Find My Way Home" by Abby Brant alongside an amazing Quilltastic take on "The Whole Of The Moon" and their latest ingeniously named instrumental showcase "Stuart's Jig" had us all tapping and clapping in unison.
