Gig: Miss Quincy – Ironworks, Oswestry – 17 Feb 2011
Posted on: Wednesday, Feb 2, 2011
Miss Quincy brings her grass roots gypsy blues from Canada to the UK & Europe for dates in February & March accompanied by guitar/banjo player Tyler Toews.
The UK tour is in support of her debut release – Your Mama Don’t Like Me which is a testament to her Grass Roots Gypsy Blues spirit.
The recording of Your Mama Don’t Like Me took place in Miss Quincy’s cabin in Northern BC during a cold snap where temperatures dropped below -40 degrees. If you listen closely you may just hear the crackling of a wood stove or the swish of a whiskey bottle. The album includes some of Canada’s finest roots musicians Craig Korth (Widow Maker), Glennn Mitchell (Russell Jackson Band), Josh Giesbrecht (Resurrect Christ Foundation), and Peter Mynett (Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra) and is soaked with Miss Quincy’s signature vocal prowess and vintage flair.
Miss Quincy does not fit the classic Singer/Songwriter mould. Equal parts edgy frontier woman and risqué saloon Madame, her mystique lays within the character created through her music, stories, and carnival weaved throughout her show. Influenced by the renegade women who came before, Miss Quincy draws inspiration from the blues ladies of the 1930s, boot stompin’ bluegrass, and a healthy dose of vaudeville.
Miss Quincy is of a new breed of DIY Canadian musicians who are fiercely independent and committed to a grassroots music approach. Performing solo, as a duo, and with a band, Miss Quincy has played festivals, bar rooms, street corners, and living rooms all across Canada and the UK and has shared stages with leaders of the Canadian music scene, such as CR Avery, Coco Love Alcorn, Little Miss Higgins, Scott Cook, and the Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra.
