John Fairhurst (also playing Glastonbury this year)
With support from James Wilson, Moksha and Neil Jarvis.
Bristol based, the John Fairhurst Band are a newly formed trio fronted by their eponymous songwriter. Drawing from rock, blues and world music, with a penchant for slide guitar and a distinctive deep growling voice, his songs delivered in pure raconteur style; narrate all the hardships of life on the road.
John Fairhurst Band
The British rock guitar phenomenon. Sucker punch solos and a gravel swilled belter of a voice. A masterful musician and songwriter, John is recognised as the most creative guitarist on the circuit. Expect heavy electric guitar riffs, face-melting solos and his unmistakable growling vocals. Backed by the hardest-hitting rhythm section on the scene, John’s live shows are loud, sweaty, explosive and powerful. “A mutant Jimi Hendrix/Neil Young hybrid. The inspiration here comes from Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and many others…over-driven guitar and Tom-Waits-dukes-it-out-with-Mark-Lanegan vocals…astonishingly powerful.” (Music Riot) “John Fairhurst is a phenomenon known as the Wigan Jimi Hendrix…Audiences are blown away by his ability to channel Rock & Roll greats into a modern and really jumping sound.” (Chris Tofu - Island Records/Continental Drifts) “John is the owner of one of the deepest voices we've ever heard, like Captain Beefheart but even more so. He sings about the bottom of the ocean and that is how deep his voice is.” (Classic Rock Magazine)
