Out of Abingdon
Warwick Hargreaves - Guitar / Vocals
Tina Fullerton - Double Bass / Vocals
From dappled-shade-ice-tinkling riverside afternoons to balmy twighlight city rooftops and late-night jam joints,
Out of Abingdon continue to make their indelible mark on the jazz and blues soundscape.
Their interpretations of the greats are as captivatingly unique as they are eminently respectful. Their originals are effortlessly spellbinding, flowing and following in the musical footsteps of the greats who inspire them: Bjork, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Nina Simone, Grant Green, Tom Waits, JJ Cale, Kenny Burrell, Joan Armatrading, Bill Withers and the incomparable Miles Davis. It’s an eclectic, intoxicating fusion; and one that continues to bewitch and charm festival audiences for thousands of miles around.
Hargreaves' guitar is deft, explorative; penetrating into every nook and nuance. Fullerton is breathy, sultry and seductive; at other times innocent wisp. Theirs is an understated elegance that draws the listener in.

Went to see this duo last night in The Jazz Bar and was really impressed. Superb! If you like jazz, blues, soul music you'll love this duo. Great dynamics, lots of feeling and sensitivity to their playing, I was mesmorized and could have watched them all night. Beautiful, tender, sincere and meaningful playing and vocals.
