TEIGNMOUTH FOLK CONCERTS                              -
10th December              QuickSilver                  £14/10
                     The Back Beach Boyz               

The duo QuickSilver are Hilary Spencer and Grant Baynham, the former a formidable talent honed over many years of professional singing on stage as well as a 20 year stint with the a cappella group Artisan, and the latter a singer-guitarist who has no difficulty interpreting the two-finger “snakes and ladders” runs of Django up and down the fingerboard and then following on with Bach and Scarlatti. Grant spent five years as resident performer on the TV show “That’s Life!” in the footsteps of his friend, the late Jake Thackray, and he has a similar way of using words and music to illuminate the quirky corners of life that many of us don’t take the time or opportunity to look into. He has a strident voice which ranges from baritone to almost counter-tenor in the high harmonies he traces behind Hilary’s strong contralto, though she too has a vocal variety that can amaze the listener.

The Back Beach Boyz are Teignmouth's very own Shanty Crew. Only formed a couple of years ago they are being more and more frequently booked and perform to great acclaim. Should ensure the night goes with good humour.
