Looking forward to se you to Night

Great, Jo! Unfortunately I won't make it tonight, but hope you enjoy the time in Copenhagen.

You played so good. Loved the tracks you did. Haven't heard them before

You won't get that in the overhead locker

What's that piece about the moon called? The one where it's sometimes hidden, but we persevere nonetheless.

You and Amalie are a musical dream come true. I hope that you will both come to the Czech Republic someday. Best regards to you and Amalia. 🌟

Godspeed! 😍

Speaking of Myrkur...I remember, I was in Budapest in 2018, on December 13, a bit cold, but I was warmed by the thought that I would see Myrkur up close. The surprise of the evening was another one, I was discovering Jo Quail!πŸ™πŸ₯°

I thought you were next to a latex wearing person’s ass before looking again. Sometimes we see what we want to see πŸ˜‚.

Have a great gig! 🎻😁✌️

Great gig and travel safe!🎼😘🎼

Looking forward to it!

Safe travels gorgeous Joanna, love Myrkur.xx❀️❀️

Early bird catches the plane! have a great gig🎢😍X

Have a great time,

Have a fabulous time

Safe and happy travels x

A hug from Verona dear Jo ❀️

Have fun

Looking so much forward seeing you again in dk 🀩

After party? 😁

Safe travels Jo

Save travel and enjoy your stay

Yaaaayy!!😍😍😍❀️❀️❀️

done & done! Good luck! XXXXX

Well done Jo, so deserved

Yessssssssssss !!!!!

Thank you for your words dear Jo! We love you back! 🫢

Voted. I'm amazed by the enormous talents of many new bands for me. The what I called "new bands" are bands from early 2000's, but still remain fresh. Bands like The Ocean and Riverside still sounds amazing. Jo Quail is a British cellist I've discovered thanks to her collaboration with Japanese Post Rock band MONO, and I have followed her since then. What an artist! Thank you Jo for sharing this contest. You deserve all nominations and prizes. ❀️🀘🏻

Good morning Jo,,,all voted..good luck πŸ€žπŸ‘

Done in multiple categories!😘😘🎼🎼😘😘

Thank you dear Jo... a hug from Verona ❀️

Voted x2, good luck πŸ–€πŸ€˜ (also great to see Ne Obliviscaris up there)

Voted πŸ‘good luck 🀞

Hey πŸ™‹ I vote for you πŸ‘πŸŽΆ viel Glück πŸ€

Done Also IGNEA - just the greatest Ukrainian band ever and a wonderful bunch of people...

Voted Joanna, for you of course, you gorgeous and immensely talented muso! Big hugs.xx ❀️

I've done some secret vocals!!! But mainly cello...! Collaborating with other artists is one of my favourite things to do. This is David Rooney who you'll know as the mighty talent behind The Cartographer sleeve artwork. David is also a fantastic composer and guitar player, and it was a joy to work with him recently on his new Echotal release 'Kadira'. Kadira is a hypnotic track, utterly beautiful and you HAVE to see the video that accompanies this! I got to join forces with Niels and Torsten again, which is always a joy, and the result of David's work is stunning, I hope you'll enjoy it.

Now, I'm experimenting with navigating the good old algorithms (that looks like the wrong spelling to me) so I'll put the video link in a COMMENT BELOW, please, if you can, take the time to have a watch of this, you'll be utterly captivated by this magical combination of Khatoon's dance and David's music.

I wish you all a most beautiful week, let's catch up soon, love Jo xx
