TWO of the brightest shining lights of the UK’s contemporary acoustic scene will be performing at Jack Blackman’s Tuery Sessions at the Cross Keys, Alcester this Sunday (April 9).
Alex Taylor is an energetic and passionate vocalist, a dextrous and original acoustic guitarist who also uses some dynamic loop pedal trickery for good measure.
His unique style splices elements of soul, nu-folk and electronica to place his powerful, shape-shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.
His debut album features performances from members of The Invisible, Phantom Limb, Portishead and Massive Attack.
Also on the bill is Henry Parker, a man rooted in the sound of original ’60s folk guitar. His music has a style first spearheaded by such iconic players as John Renbourn, Davey Graham and Bert Jansch.
Drawing on traditional material alongside original songs and instrumentals, he magically binds them all together with a creative and distinctive finger-style approach.
The music will start at 6pm, there will be a raffle featuring CDs from all of the performers and the evening will conclude with a jam session.
