Latest News

Hi everyone!

I have exciting news to share! 

First of all, the debut album of Matt Quinn & Owen Woods

comes out at the end of the month and is being launched with a

weekend of gigs:

Thursday 25th - Private House Concert, Ripon (SOLD OUT)

Friday 26th - Bodmin Folk Club, Cornwall

Saturday 27th - Lewes Saturday Folk Club, Sussex

Sunday 28th - Shakespeare's, Sheffield

Click the 'DATES' link above to find information about tickets.


We hope to see many people there to help us launch our album. 

It will also be available to pre-order, which brings me on to my next piece of exciting news:


I have taken over the management of the my family's small home-grown record label, Hebe Music and as of Monday 8th April, the record label shop will be fully functioning and online. There, you'll able to find and purchase the current 9 HebeCD releases (dating back to 1996), plus the pre-order page for the Matt Quinn & Owen Woods album. Simply click on the 'SHOP' link above to pay Hebe a visit.

That's it for this month, more exciting news in May.

Releasing albums!

Spring 2019


I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. 


The coming months are rather exciting for me, because I have two new albums coming out.

The first is the album "Unaccustomed As We Are" the debut album by myself and melodeon maestro Owen Woods. We will be going on a short tour at the end of April to launch the album. See my 'dates' page for details about the launch tour. More details about the album nearer the time. 

The second album is the new album by The Dovetail Trio (myself, Rosie Hood, Jamie Roberts). Watch this space for details about the album and the launch tour.

Recording albums!

Autumn 2018

This autumn is very exciting indeed. I am recording two albums with two separate groups. 

Currently underway is the album recording with my good friend Owen Woods. Our debut album "Unaccustomed As We Are" will be completed soon and released in April 2019 with some launch gigs around the country. Watch this space!


Next month (October), The Dovetail Trio will be heading into the studio to record our 2nd album. We're excited to be working with Tom Wright of Powered Flight Music again. He always does such a great job. 

News of both launch tours will appear in the new year.
