An alternative folk band from Wigan formed in 2013, Quaintest Show On Earth has featured a variety of musicians and song writers.
QSOE have played main stage along side artists from all over the world at festivals such as the Ukulele Festival of Scotland and the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival.
Their music has been featured on advertising campaigns, radio, film soundtracks and has been requested to be included in the British Library.
The first album Lucid Dreamer, from band founder T.W.Jones features interesting sonic soundscape, hard hitting lyricism and a lo-fi chill nature.
In 2015 they released ‘Mon The Tudor’ a live recording of QSOE performing at the last ever night at the legendary Tudor venue in their hometown of Wigan, featuring: Robbie Cavanagh, the late Josh Hindle, Michael Frost, T.W. Jones and Arnold Foster
The same year the second studio album Delusions Of Grandeur was made available. Each track was a pastiche or homage to a specific genre encompassing several decades of influences. Written and recorded by TJ and Michael Frost & produced by Rachel Foster,
it featured a variety of musicians including original drummer Arnold Foster.
2016 was a year of acoustic singles used as soundtracks to be released at a later date.
QSOE released Day To Day Parade in 2017, their most professional release to date. Recorded with local legend Gareth Nutall at The Lounge, the EP's jangly optimism works well against the backdrop of pop sensible but serious folk music.
