The Salomé Quartet is a multinational ensemble formed in 2016 by four prizewinning students at the Royal College of Music in London. In 2017 the quartet won the RCM String Quartet Competition, and since then they have performed worldwide in venues including Muzikverein (Vienna), Mozarteum (Salzburg), Unesco Hall (Paris), Lutoslawski Concert Studio (Warsaw), Tel Aviv Opera House (Israel), as well as the Wigmore Hall, Barbican Centre, Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall in London.

An Audience With Spike From The Quireboys
Saturday 17 february 8pm
The trademark bandana. A drink in his hand. More stories of rock and roll ribaldry up his sleeve than all four members of the Rolling Stones combined. This is Spike. Singer, songwriter and showman supreme. He’s been the face of the Quireboys for almost 40 years but listen carefully and you’ll hear his trademark rasp on a succession of critically acclaimed solo records and treasured collaborations. Music is Spike’s lifeblood. Always has been and always will be. But buy him a few glasses of his favourite red wine and he’ll freely admit family and Newcastle United come a very close second.
Featuring songs and stories from Spike’s life in Rock ‘n’ Roll with The Quireboys, touring the world, Rolling Stones to Guns & Roses. Every night shines a different light on a career which could have burned out with excess but yet shines even brighter now than ever. Up close and personal as he takes you on a journey through some of his and your favourite songs. Spike and Chris play through two sets laced with the good, the bad and the downright ugly!
