Bio details: Rhodesian born
Born Alan Elderkin, he first took the stage name of Alan Quinn and sang with the Etonians. Changing the name of Alan Quinn to that of Quinsey, he and came to prominence in South Africa in the late 60’s. His vocal range of three-and-a-half octaves impressed Graeme Beggs (amongst others!) who signed
him up for a recording contract. He subsequently toured South Africa with the Statesmen and Beau Brummel in 1967. Arising from this, he appeared in Brummel’s film “Three Bullets For A Long Gun” which was banned in South Africa! Quinsey also proved himself adept at songwriting with the film compositions, “Wonderful Day” and “South Of Capricorn” to his credit.
Alan Elderkin sadly passed away on the morning of Monday, 6 September, 2010, the day after his last performance at The Richards Hotel in Richards Bay, KZN, South Africa.
