Close Quarters are Sandra Harrison and husband Steve with friends, Jen Wilson and Judith Gleave.
Steve, Sandra and Judith have been singing together for over 30 years, formerly as Quartz, which included Pete Gleave, Judith's late husband. As Quartz they made four recordings, which were well received.
After Steve and Sandra moved to the lake District Jen joined them to perform as a trio at some north west folk clubs, but for some festival appearances Judith can still be tempted to join them to add her distinctive harmonies.
Their repertoire, delivered a capella, includes traditional and contemporary songs, gospel, music hall and some self-penned songs from Steve. A couple of his songs are sung quite widely and recorded by others on the folk circuit. They sing in close harmony and give their audiences lots of choruses to join in with. An album should be available this year.
