Doors 7pm

An explosion of textures, influences and intoxicating musicianship. The stand-out guitarist to have emerged from the British blues/folk/acoustic scene, a captivating storyteller, breaking out into new territory with a distinctive, gritty, vocal style and a melting-pot of musical influences.

Following rapturous receptions with main stage shows at numerous UK festivals, including Glastonbury, John is back in the studio, laying down tracks for the long-awaited follow-up to the critically acclaimed acoustic album, Joys of Spring (2008).

A masterful musician and songwriter, John is recognised as one of the most creative guitarists on the circuit. Drawing inspiration from fingerpicking maestros John Fahey, Bert Jansch and Leo Kottke, blues guitarists Robert Johnson, Bukka White and Mississippi Fred McDowell, African guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Moroccan Gnaoua music, Indian sarod and sitar masters K Sridhar and Ravi Shankar and more recently Christopher Paul Stelling and John Butler, John references a diverse collection of world genres, blending eastern melodies with jaw-dropping guitar dexterity. His solo sets truly are a lesson in the art of fingerpicking blues and acoustic folk.

“Truly exquisite.” (The Guardian)

“Fairhurst is both a masterful musician and songwriter, who
carefully intertwines music of varying ethnicities into one roaring
whole...with a freshness that is breathtaking… Makes Seasick
Steve’s three stringed blues sound like the two-dimensional
ramblings of a penniless hobo.”
(Chris Gilliver — citylifers.co.uk)

“John Fairhurst is possibly the finest guitarist you will ever
see...brilliant songwriting and a gravel-swilled belter of a voice.”
(BBC Manchester)
