Jim Ghedi hails from the South Yorkshire hills and although clearly well versed in the history of British folk music, he stands out as a potential torch bearer for a new generation of respectful yet experimental performers. Whilst Ghedi’s previous idiosyncratic take on folk has often been instrumental, his new album ‘In The Furrows Of Common Place’ is a deeper plunge inside himself to offer up more of his voice to accompany his profoundly unique and moving compositions. Departing away from previous work, here he draws from social – political observations, contemporary songwriting, historical & traditional material and a rich varied number of other inspirations and sources, such as the poetry of John Clare, the writing of Robert Macfarlane and the works of South Yorkshire author Barry Hines. Jim has received BBC 2 play from Mark Radcliffe, BBC 6 Music airplay from Gideon Coe, Cerys Matthews and Elizabeth Alker and BBC 3 play from Verity Sharp, he has recently had a book of poems & songs’ Spring Of Yarrow’ published through Ration Books.
“A chastening meditation on Britain in 2021” ~ 8/10 UNCUT
“Melodically sublime… although Ghedi’s music is infused with tradition, it’s very much experiencing the present” ~ ★★★★☆ MOJO
“Jim Ghedi finds his voice on his new album, superb!” ~ ★★★★★ The Morning Star
“A starkly beautiful set.. ancient and modern combine evocatively and with grace” ~ ★★★★☆ The Times
Having released two full length LP’s of kaleidoscopic Alt Folk, Ellie Ford returns with new material, solo and darker. Her voice and harp twisted and distorted through effects pedals and rolling drum machines. It is delicate, yet powerful and moving.
“Ellie Ford has the type of voice that can transport any listener into a dream-like fantasy.” – WJ London
Bird in the Belly
Brighton-based ‘folk noir’ quartet Bird in the Belly will be bringing songs of social and traditional relevance to the evening.
