Following the release of her latest album ’The Cartographer’ last year and European tours with Wardruna, Emma Ruth Rundle, and Amenra, internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso cellist Jo Quail has announced her first-ever headline UK tour for May this year. Jo comments,
“I am so excited to announce that in May I’ll be playing some headline concerts for you! We’ve got some absolutely beautiful venues in here. I’ll be playing a much longer set than most of you will have seen, I’ll bring both cellos, and the thing that excites me the most is the thought of playing some brand new music to you, seeing what you think, letting the pieces take their shape and form in your company. Tickets are now live, it would mean the world to me to have you with me on my first-ever headline tour. 
I feel a bit emotional truth be told. I’m here because you’ve been with me from the early days, or perhaps we’ve met only recently, but you’ve all stayed, you’ve shared your stories, you’ve been part of all things, and I know this, and I thank you with my whole heart. All blessings to you all my friends
