Roadburn 2020 : I have been commissioned by Roadburn Festival to compose a new work to be premiered in 2020 at the festival. I’m writing for an incredibly exciting ensemble including members of the acclaimed Dutch ‘New Trombone Collective’, and renowned vocalist Lucie Dehli among others, more news to follow!
Arctangent 20th – 22nd August 2020 ‘Quail vs Kenny’ special one off collaboration! Howard Kenny and I are collaborating, it’s going to be crazy, come and join us! Loops, effects, vocals, percussion, synth, spoken word, massive beats, atmospherics, the list goes on. Even we don’t know what we are going to make, so please come on this one off journey with us!

“This was a masterclass in truly progressive music (in fact she won the 2019 Limelight Newcomer award from Prog Magazine this year) and inclusive too.” Thank you so much to Jonathan Kardasz at Bristol24/7 for this great review of my set at Exchange on Thursday 26 Sept with Emma Ruth Rundle.
“There is something special here, something very special that makes Jo Quail’s performances stunning and enthralling. If you get the chance to catch her live, do yourself a favour and grab it.” Thank you Andy Pountney at Ave Noctum for this review from Leeds recently with Emma Ruth Rundle.
'Jo shines in her compositional craft and an ingenuity in approaching what her instrument can do.’ 8/10
