“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)
