Johnny’s gorgeous and seemingly effortless vocals have graced the folk-scene since the emergence of Decameron in the early 1970s. An experienced solo performer, accompanying himself on piano and guitar, he is a talented songwriter and a fine interpretative singer. He also presented the Acoustic Music Show on BBC Radio Gloucestershire for over twenty years.
Paul Burgess is a longstanding musical collaborator, including regular participation in Johnny’s annual Christmas tour. A classically trained recorder-player and defiantly un-classical violinist, widely considered to be one of the leading exponents of English fiddle playing, he also has a talent for deadpan humour. A magical combination at any time of the year.
Songs will include - some from the latest album River of Dreams – and some from Gloucestershire poets such as F W Harvey and Ivor Gurney – alongside material from Johnny’s many albums.
“River of Dreams is a fantastic record...it showcases Johnny’s evocative and expressive vocals and the songwriting is simply stunning” – Fatea magazine
“Every song is perfectly crafted and beautifully performed, and Johnny’s vocals are exquisite. River of Dreams is, indeed, a joy to behold.” - At The Barrier webzine
