Gwenifer Raymond / Gerrard Bell-fife / ADRA Ensemble in Shipley on Wednesday 22nd January 2020
Wednesday January 22nd 2020
ADRA promotions est. 1980 presents
Blistering-yet-moody American-primitive style acoustic guitar and banjo instrumentals from Cardiff via Brighton. Raymond's profile has grown quickly since her 2018 debut 'You Never Were Much of a Dancer' released on Josh Rosenthal's San Francisco based Tompkin's Square Records. Don’t miss this rare chance to see her in the intimate surroundings of The Triangle beer shop.
“ stunningly confident, in full possession of its art. Guitar soli is in very good hands here indeed.”
- 8/10 Uncut
“This is a gorgeous album, and Gwenifer Raymond is a profound talent.”
-5* The Guardian
'Its intricate folk melody is Welsh and Celtic in style but American Old West in practice. The rhythmic patterns mimic the swift dynamics of a fiddle with a country twang. Western music was originally influenced by traditional folk music from England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland; Raymond’s seamless crossover grows from these historically intersecting roots.'
'American Primitive Guitar is a unique sub-genre of acoustic instrumental guitar music that exists under the always foreboding shadow of John Fahey, the late, idiosyncratic, and troubled genius credited with almost single-handedly inventing the form … and sprinkled among those collections is a small assortment of fingerpicking women capable of meeting and even beating their male contemporaries note for note.'
- Pop Matters
