‘The monumental cliffs, swelling ebb and rural village politics of the Shetland Islands are the inspiration behind the music of the Norman Willmore Quintet. All the musicians in the band are working towards a common goal with no ego present, and not one person ever standing out. Playing together for 3 years in the same line-up has given the band a distinctive sound that is soft and inviting but always with thefeeling of momentum and power behind it. They are often all improvising together in a tasteful dialogue, taking the audience on a journey to the last house at the end of the last road.’
