The release of Quinn’s new album, Blue Verdun, showcases the old-school pop sensibilities of artists like Bobby Vinton and Brenda Lee while retaining a mature sense of musicianship heard in the playing of Bob Wills, Joe Venuti, and Charlie Christian. Brishen operates live as a 5 piece with rhythm guitar, drums and bass also featuring a clarinet and saxophonist to complement Quinn’s voice and string work on fiddle and guitar. The group is doing an official cross-Canada CD release tour this summer with performances at folk and jazz festivals from British Columbia to Nova Scotia.
