Fresh from opening for Myrkur over the past week, as well as joining her on stage in her Folkesange project, internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso cellist Jo Quail has been added to the UK leg of the upcoming Amenra and Boris European tour. Jo comments:

This year marks the 20th anniversary since Turin-based instrumental trio STEARICA began to play together. Yes, they met as kids in school! Their many years of friendship and musical collaboration have allowed them to develop their almost-telepathic tightness onstage, in which they seem to play as one three-headed beast.
