About the Event

Singer-Songwriter/Guitarist James Hollingsworth's songs are refreshingly inventive and accessible, drawn from his Folk-Blues roots, influenced by the likes of John Martyn, Roy Harper and Tim Buckley as well as Prog Rock, by turns delicately tranquil and then soaring with "hypnotic groove munching guitar space freak-outs - plus glorious songwriting within" (so said The Wunder Bar). Steeped with ecological awareness, a rare hopefulness, warmly humorous undercurrents, and immaculate musicianship, he is "a true exponent of the modern British singer/songwriter - a real gem" say Monmouthshire Music. James has a unique, exciting acoustic guitar style reminiscent of the Andalusian tradition, a superb and passionate singing voice with a mean harmonica style to boot. With his upcoming run of headline shows 'Psych Rock Night', built upon decades of busy gigging, James has also been seen supporting Nick Harper three times over the years, also Cara Dillon, David Ford, Hazel O'Connor, Arthur Brown, Phil Beer, 60's legends It's a Beautiful Day and even the legendary Barry 'The Fish' Melton (of Country Joe and The Fish fame), who once observed: "It was truly a phenomenal experience hearing James Hollingsworth's music, I know now that the tradition of groundbreaking music is in good hands. Thank you, James – Barry Melton." Since going full-time as a music professional in 2006, James has survived through recession and pandemic as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist performer, travelling the length and breadth of the UK with bards and in bars, festivals and arts centres, honing his talents as an energetic and animated front man, making for a "captivating performance..." His Thirteen Moons album was James' response to the lockdown, for each of the Moon cycles in 2021-2022.
