“A troubadour evening of exceptional musical storytelling to gather folk together and inspire the collective imagination.”
Gareth Davies-Jones – singer, songwriter, story-teller and producer has been writing, recording and performing as a professional musician for twenty years. The lead songwriter from Howay The Lasses, a collaborator with folk luminaries like Megson, Calum Stewart, Celtish and Yvonne Lyon, from community halls to concert halls, he has travelled the length and breadth of the country armed with a rich distinctive voice and now two decades worth of perceptive and compelling songwriting spanning some sixteen albums and song-writing collaborations. Having garnered a loyal following on the independent roots/acoustic scene, his solo performances are known for gathering people together, inviting audiences to travel with him into a world of landscapes, history, characters and causes all underpinned with assured vocals and the warmth and vibrancy of a beautifully played array of stringed instruments. From stories of heroism on the Irish Sea to gentle praise for a Loire Valley village, from insight into the lives of pitman painters to musical tributes to the iconic lighthouses and captivating landscapes that define Northern Britain an evening with Gareth is as much story-telling adventure as it is musical entertainment.
“All Things Come” sets out to share a life in song-writing to warm the heart and soul.
“..an accomplished live performer…. observant of traditional music but building on it, playing and singing elegantly; time in the company of someone you may just have come across – and you’re rather glad that you have.” Mike Wistow, Folking.com
