20190510: Friday 10th May: The Dan Walsh Trio
Support: Soloman Smith
The exciting new Dan Walsh Trio features award-winning fiddler Ciaran Algar and long-time collaborator and mandolin maestro Nic Zuppardi. After a successful first tour last year, this fantastic trio are touring their new album. At the heart of the trio's sound is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves. Add to all that, poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour, and the result is sure to be a truly memorable live show featuring three of the most in-demand musicians on the folk scene today.
“Virtuoso playing,” Morning Star.
Soloman Smith: A Cambridgeshire singer/songwriter who writes folk songs of acute observation, accompanied on guitar and mandocello, Soloman’s memorable choruses will make you want to join in. Flavoured with soul, jazz, funk, country and more, his music is not easy to pin down. His CD 'Lasagne Moments' has been highly praised by RnR magazine as "wordy and thought provoking”, with “a wry intelligence at work." In a live gig review, 'Louderthanwar' set his name alongside J. J. Cale, and said that his songs "match the quality of Clive Gregson".
For this set, Soloman will be joined by Keith Hagger on bass and Jody Swanborough on drums.
"Soloman has a soulful voice and heart of conscience that are easy on the ear, his songs relate to the moment yet there is an essence of romance and a dunk of jazz,” Sue Marchant, BBC East Regional Radio.
