A night of extraordinary modern folk and American primitive guitar, featuring Ryley Walker, a songwriter from Chicago who's powerful voice and an effortless approach to a fine melody on the guitar has seen him compared such folk rock luminaries as Bert Jansch, Tim Buckley and Nick Drake. His much anticipated debut album is due out shortly on the legendary Tompkins Square label.
Also playing is Daniel Bachman, a masterful acoustic fingerstyle guitarist from Fredericksburg, Virginia. His unique brand of 'American primitivism' has seen him tour the world and release two critically acclaimed albums, also for the Tompkins Square label. If you’re a fan of John Fahey and Jack Rose, this is not to be missed.
Support from Polly Wilde, a powerful Bristol based singer, and leader of the 30 strong, Island Folk Choir.
