Stornoway Tomorrow Night

May 25th, 2011

Rob Briggs (vocals-guitar), Jonathan Quinn (keys-strings), Ollie Steadman (bass) and Rob Steadman (drums) met while attending Oxford University. Stornoway, the band they formed, takes its name from a town in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, and the sound leans toward a cool acoustic folk. The quartet often plays live with Adam Briggs (trumpet) and Rahul Satija (violin), and they put out two well-regarded EPs before their debut LP, Beachcomber’s Windowsill, came out last year. And now you can get an early jump on your three-day weekend by seeing Stornoway (above, performing “Fuel Up” on Later … with Jools Holland) play Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night. And don’t miss Spirit Family Reunion and Sea of Bees.
