Hickman & Quinn
James Hickman and Chris Quinn are a guitar/vocal songwriting duo from Shrewsbury. Both are popular performers in their own right and Hickman also appears in a duo with violinist Dan Cassidy. The Hickman & Quinn album “Times” (2009) features ten original songs by the duo and includes a guest appearance by accordionist Karen Tweed.
