Jo Quail (2017)

UK electric cellist JO QUAIL live at the Trinity Sessions (Adelaide) on March 4 2017, as part of her Australian tour.

The first half of the concert featured a local choir and cello section.  The first video, a performance of “This Path With Grace” has a pared-back group of cellos compared to earlier pieces in the set, by students of Therese O’Brien who is conducting here. This piece comprises four interlinked movements for solo electric cello, cello ensemble and choir (Allegria Absolutely), composed for a documentary by award winning Australian filmmaker Michael Fletcher.  Jo is hidden somewhat at the back right in this video due to the position of camera and performers…

The other video is from the second half where Jo performed solo, and is of “Salamander” from her Five Incantations album.

First, some pics from the evening (click to enlarge)…
