On the North York Moors

Jim Ghedi + Chris Brain

Sat 8 October 2022 - 7.30pm

2022 being the 100th anniversary of The Band Room we can't think of many people worthier of climbing onstage than exhilarating and mystical new English Folk star Jim Ghedi. Although clearly familiar with Folk's rich pageant, Yorkshireman Ghedi now finds himself spearheading a new generation of performers for whom the essential touchstones include social justice, the pastoral landscape and the breathtaking beauty of the natural world. Inspired by the poetry of John Clare and the writing of Robert Macfarlane and 'Kes' creator Barry Hines, Jim has already been called 'the future of folk' while others have called his music: "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...It's superb!" (***** The Morning Star); "A starkly beautiful set...ancient and modern combine evocatively and with grace." (**** The Times)
