Grayshott Folk Club Presents: Ben Walker, John Blek

"Saturday 6th April 2019 @ 7:30pm
Ben Walker / John Blek

Tonight we present two outstanding guitarists;
Ben Walker plays his own instrumental interpretations of Folk tales and tunes, whilst John Blek also has a beautiful voice that sounds somewhere between those of Roy Orbison and Clifford T. Ward.

Ben Walker visited us a while back with his musical partner Josienne Clarke. Since that time, they have won several major awards, including the BBC Radio 2 Best Folk Duo Award in 2015.
Here is Ben playing with Josienne Clarke at the BBC Radio 2 Folk wards back in 2015, when they performed "The Banks of The Sweet Primroses" together at the Wales Millenium Centre in Cardiff.

Ever prolific, John Blek has released 5 albums in the last 5 years. Currently he is preparing to release number 6, his new album "Thistle & Thorn" due out in early 2019.

John's album "Catharsis Vol. 1" was written after a long stay in hospital which came about when John was suddenly struck down by a serious, mysterious illness. His subsequent recovery and the album he produced as a result of his illness has some stunning and deeply emotional songs on it.
'Salt in the Water', one of the tracks from that same album, was nominated for Song of the Year at the International Folk
Music Awards 2018 at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City.

It's been a busy few years for John and it shows no sign of letting up. Endless tours and recording in Ireland, Europe, UK and USA
keep the Irish troubadour busy.

John is a master storyteller and an inspiring live performer. His beautiful finger style guitar playing and joyous vocals, weave a tapestry that is as poignant as it is skilful. He is a true artist.

Check out John's song "Lace" from his Catharsis Vol. 1 album here:
