3 July: SUNJAY: Folk and blues national awards nominated guitar-slinger + Jenni & Richard

Tickets £10 on the door or £10 + £1 booking fee if booked online

We’re delighted to welcome Sunjay back to TwickFolk; stepping in for the unavailable Lowri Evans (who we will reschedule for 2017).

Aged 22, Sunjay Brayne is paradoxically perhaps the last of the ‘1960’s’ guitar players. Reminiscent of Ralph McTell, John Martyn & Jackson C. Frank, his voice is authoritative and “brings a depth of meaning to all the songs he sings that belie his age”. Influenced by the blues, but drawing heavily from genres such as Folk, Country & Rock, goes from strength to strength, having already built a solid platform with his many accolades

With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of his instrument he walks onto a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.

10 July: STEVE DAN MILLS: powerful vocals with acoustic guitar and harmonica + floor spots

Tickets £10 on the door or £10 + £1 booking fee if booked online

London-based American singer-songwriter Steve Dan Mills, who combines powerful vocals with acoustic guitar and harmonica, co-founded Speed Limit 35, one of the American South’s first folk rock bands. He’s enjoyed a solo career since the 1970s, performing at the Kerrville Folk, London Folk and Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festivals. His music has been described as “the real thing, sensitive, moving, cathartic and healing”. He couples his very powerful vocals with acoustic guitar and harmonica. His masterful story telling, based on his rich and challenging life experiences, lays the groundwork for each song in a most engaging manner.

Neal Coty, Mel MacDaniel and Benita Hill have recorded Steve’s songs. “Dream On Texas Ladies” went to number 18 on the Billboard charts for Rex Allen Jr and sold 4 million copies for John Michael Montgomery. Tommy Emmanuel covered the title cut from the CD, Inside Out Lookin’ In, the song in the first video on this page.

The featured videos are from an appearance at TwickFolk in July 2014
