Quercus: June Tabor, Huw Warren & Iain Ballamy

June Tabor (vocals), Huw Warren (piano) & Iain Ballamy (saxophones)

Three of the UK’s internationally celebrated, award-winning musicians come together to create lyrical and mesmerising chamber music. This trio weaves together folk and jazz to make them seem the most natural and tender companions, with poignant words, enchanting melodies and heartfelt delivery. Saxophonist Iain Ballamy and pianist Huw Warren, both have international reputations as composers, whilst June Tabor is one of today’s most commanding and distinctive interpreters of traditional song. Their self-titled debut album is out on ECM Records.

“Clarity, stillness and deep but fragile sound. It’s a unique tribute to the power of song” (The Guardian)
