Quill Spring Forward with Bev Bevan for March Dates (Postponed)

#1,522: Leading Midlands songstress Joy Strachan-Brain will soon be taking her Quill troops through a quintet of dates during March and May alongside The Move, ELO and Black Sabbath legend Bev Bevan. The septet will call in at Solihull, Lichfield, Stourport, Bilston and Lowdham with a set list that will include not only their own material but also some inspired live reworkings of songs from Bev's illustrious career and their own inimitable take on some classic trax. Yours Truly KJS has been to and written many Quill gig reviews for elobeatlesforever (elobf) down the years and has no hesitation in recommending their four forthcoming shows.

  1. Did Ben Bevan COMPOSE anything of note lately?

  2. HiYa! Bev did contribute to the recent Quill EP's "Ghosts Of Christmas", "Grey Goose Call" and "Grey Goose Call Live" and has been in the writing process (particularly lyrics) for their forthcoming new studio album. Perhaps you might want to check out my elobf reviews of those releases? Hope this helps ... KJS@elobf
