QUINT STARKIE AND DORIE JACKSON - Evening of intimate acoustic-based music and storytelling

Helmdon Reading Room, Saturday 26 Aug 2023, 7:30pm.

Together with Dorie Jackson, Quint is doing a small number of 'house' concerts in August.

Originally from Accrington, singer songwriter Quint Starkie has been in the music business for many years, working as a session musician, composer, producer and live performer.

In 2001 he signed a publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing and wrote and produced over 150 songs. The song "Always You" composed by Quint, is on the soundtrack to "My Best Friends Wedding".

Dorie is the daughter of David Jackson of Van der Graaf Generator fame. She started her professional singing career as a backing vocalist for Francis Dunnery. Francis introduced Dorie to many great musicians and writers, one of which was Chris Difford (Squeeze) and she has sung backing vocals on several albums with other great artists including William Topley, and Marti Pellow. She also has a solo album The Courting Ground.

The duo will perform songs from Quint's albums Ghost in my Heart and Quintessential.

Here's Spotify links to Quint's albums.

And YouTube clips from a recent concert.

I really hope you can support this, so we can maybe make concerts a regular happening...there are many talented artists doing smaller intimate venues.
