Folk & blues trio step into the breach
By David Wood
Where: Under the Edge Arts, Wotton-under-Edge, GL12 7AD.
When: Saturday, January 26, 8pm
A trio of headliners from the West Country folk & blues scene will be playing at Under the Edge Arts on Saturday, January 26.
Jim Reynolds, Hilary Pavey and Dave Griffiths replace the original booking, Iron & Oak, due to illness.
Jim and Hilary will be new to UTEA, while Dave played mandolin here in 2017 as a member of the well-received Brejeiro, and is delighted to be returning.
Jim Reynolds is a guitarist and singer who writes and plays an eclectic mix of music. The individual pieces tap into blues, ragtime, rhythm and blues, music hall and folk traditions.
Some are extremely sensitive songs about life, people and relationships, while others are tongue in cheek. His albums are also sprinkled with classics from the likes of J.J. Cale, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Roy Orbison, the Inkspots, Jelly Roll Morton and Jimmy Rogers.
Hilary Pavey is widely acclaimed on the South West's acoustic scene and is well-known for her beautifully crafted songs. She is a talented guitarist with a unique style which blends perfectly with her clear and expressive vocals.
Her intelligent and heartfelt themes captivate her listeners as they relate to her lyrics and some of her more quirky numbers bring warmth and humour to her performance.
Dave Griffiths is a renowned blues, choro and jazz mandolin player and an accomplished jazz bass player. He started playing mandolin in the 60s influenced by blues, ragtime and jug band music.
See the UTEA website for ticket details.
Iron & Oak's gig has been rescheduled for May 16, 2020.
