Stephen Quigg has long since established himself on the Scottish folk scene and after more than thirtyfive years of singing, he is still dedicated to the music and the songs of Scotland. Stephen accompanies himself on guitar and bodhran (occasionally also the banjo when he remembers to bring it) and with an outstanding voice, you can watch him capture the attention of any audience. Through wit, charm and an obvious love and respect for the music he delivers, Stephen has gained many constant followers, who travel regularly to his gigs in Scotland and beyond.
The songs Stephen sings range from pin-dropping traditional ballads to footstomping songs of battle (as he’ll point out, he only sings about the battles Scotland won, which possibly doesn’t leave a whole lot). With effortless ease he also blends the traditional material with songs of a more contemporary date keeping the material fresh and the performer enthusiastic. In 2001 Stephen joined the internationally acclaimed folk group the McCalmans and has since then added to his solo career a busy touring life in Scotland and mainland Europe. The group called it a day in 2010 after many successful years. Stephen , however, continues his solo career in Scotland and abroad renewing old friendships and making some new ones along the way.
Stephen has performed at countless venues from major festivals and top theatres to the smallest of Highland village halls. There is, however, one fine thread running through his performance whether the numbers in the audience are counted in tens or thousands - that is the quality of his singing, and the value of the music he lives through and continues to pass on.
'This is straight ahead folk song. Few gimmicks, good songs, good strong singing...Have a listen. You'll be impressed.'
'......Stephen has produced several solo CD's and is one of
the most in-demand musicians in Scotland. Stephen's fine singing and unaffected enthusiasm
for the music has made him extremely popular wherever he has performed.'

"I've nothing to gain by saying this, because the Macs are a thing of the past, but this album by Stephen and Pernille is a real cracker. There's a lovely combination of old and new and the balance of the two voices is magic. I thoroughly recommend It." Ian McCalman
Stephen's CD featuring songs in which he took the lead during his year's in the group - a superb collection of songs.
