Event description

Description

Nick Jonah Davis

Nick Jonah Davis is a formidable guitarist in the tradition of Bert Jansch and Nick Drake. Though there’s a clear comparison to be made with the monolithic John Fahey, perhaps there’s a more British sensibility to his playing. Making use of modal tunings to create a resonating whole, Davis’s spindly melodies sometimes hither and thither on top, whilst at other times forthright lines are prominent.The effect is always a thoroughly rich and nourishing, highly spirited series of wordless tales.

'Visionary stuff' - Bruce Russell, Wire Magazine

'Davis invites the listener into a world bounded by the resonance of his tunings and the vividness of his evolving melodies' - Bill Meyer, Dusted

'Nick Jonah Davis is one of the select band of living solo acoustic guitar players whose music is not only virtuosic, but genuinely exciting' - fRoots Magazine

Burnt Paw

Burnt Paw is a songwriter and fingerstyle folk guitarist who lives beneath Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. His music is influenced by a wide range of alternative and experimental artists/styles from both sides of the Atlantic, including psychedelic folk, contemporary, new/dark folk, and whatever weird wonders he discovers on Bandcamp (that’s where you’ll find his music too). Burnt Paw’s songs unwind from oral histories, dream-fragments, myths, imaginary adventures and life-stories. He loves self-made art, occasionally publishes poetry, reads a lot of Walt Whitman and buys too many second hand books on Neolithic history.
