Rare Skip Moses Performance This Week
- Where: Bennigan's Bar, Derry
- When: Friday 9th December, 9:30pm
- Tax: £5
Skip Moses are a Belfast-based new-folk collective fronted by the irrepressible Jonny Black. Their musical influence sweeps from Southern Appalachia to the East bank of Belfast - a time-traveling show of bluegrass, alternative rock and political protest.
Black cultivates well-worn stories of the local eccentric, the trainee psychopath, and imagines them at their worst. Like the kid who survived a house fire but was fused onto a synthetic settee. "He pictures the scenes in some old dive bar and expands them into a horrendous vision to out-brutalise Brueghel." (Stuart Bailie - BBC Radio Ulster)
On Skip Moses' debut long player (set for release early 2012) original cuts segue seamlessly into reimagined versions of Jim O'Rourke, Elizabeth Cotton and Woody Guthrie classics with sumptuous ease - tracing the lines of a century of musical commonality.
Graceful and epic, understated and powerful - Skip Moses' music reminds us of simpler times and greater truths.
Skip Moses - Seasons Reverse [STA] by Smalltown America
Irish troubadour Junior Johnson brews his own blend of moonshine combining Americana , Folk and the Blues. Junior subtly draws his influences from the greats (with hints of George Thorogood and Willie Nelson)
Aiming high for 2012, and following his highly acclaimed EP ‘Stoned, Ripped, Twisted. Good People’ Junior is focusing on recording new material and playing live. Junior has recently played all over th UK & Ireland and most notably he played this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Junior has shared the stage with the likes of Shane MacGowan, Frankie Miller’s Full House Band and has graced the Eagle’s Rock Tent at Glasgowbury for three consecutive years, gigging extensively all over in between. He has recently opened for The Mighty Stef, Andy Irvine, and John Bramwell of IAMKLOOT, who also invited him for a follow up gig.
In 2006, Junior was honoured with the title of 'L.A. Music Awards Folk Artist Of The Year' for his song, 'The Fireside'. This highly coveted acknowledgment was an achievement to further echo Junior’s raw talent as a solo artist.
