QUINN’S QUINNEY (9-9:45pm / 10-10:45pm)

"Imagine putting a mandolin, a double bass and an acoustic guitar inside a washing machine. Throw in a tambourine, a kazoo, a pint of cider and put it on a 90 minute hot-wash cycle. Hang the lot out to dry on a summer's evening in rural Dorset and you'll get a rough idea of how we sound."
