‘Something of enormous promise’ - Songlines
Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home. Their stunning live performances have engaged and impressed audiences across the UK and Europe and have included an extensive support tour with folk legends Show Of Hands and main stage shows at some of the UK’s most prestigious festivals.

Support comes from George Nash, who will take you to a place of zen and relaxation. Taking influence from the likes of Ben Howard and Ludovico Einaudi, the fingerstyle guitarist’s music channels all manner of instruments from percussion to bass and beyond into one acoustic guitar – live and with no backing tracks. George draws his inspiration for his music from nature and the countryside around his home in Wales. We guarantee you’ll be given a new light on what the acoustic guitar is capable of!
“What I love best about his music is the unique and unpredictable qualities of his tunes. He's not afraid to explore less obvious themes and take the listener on a real musical journey” — Nigel Gilbert
