Prog's favourite cellist composer Jo Quail has teamed up with UK guitar virtuoso Jon Gomm for a series of live dates around the UK in December and January.

The Prallel Worlds tour, which starts at Southampton's 1865 on December 7 and runs through to Leeds Old Wollen on January 27 also includes three nights at Bristol's The Gryphon.

"Virtuosic is one word to describe a performance from Jon, but does not come close to conveying the emotion and intent that threads through every song; awe-inspiring technical brilliance serving the music he creates," Quail enthuses about her new touring companion. "As two soloists, Jon and I share some similarities, yet we have strong individual musical identities, and to bring our worlds together for these unique concerts is an immensely exciting prospect." 

"In Jo Quail I've found a musician who shares my vision of striving to use one instrument, and a load of technique, to create a sound as big and deep and detailed as possible, to build a world around the listener," adds Gomm. "Hopefully the two of us on the same show will be a fairly epic experience."
