Caught by the River & Friendly Records present…

Followers of the site will be well aware of our longstanding love affair with Bristol’s Centrespace Gallery. It’s a nice space to put on gigs, and Nick Hand, the man at the helm, is rather nice too. Niceness all around.

Even nicer: we’re teaming up with one of our favourite record shops, Friendly Records, to bring a night of guitar-based magic to BS1.

Daniel Bachman is the self-proclaimed player of “psychedelic appalachia” on 6-string and lap guitar. Ian Preece’s recent review of his self-titled debut album asserts: ‘Fantastic; play loud.’ If you need any more convincing, you can read the review in its entirety here.

In a complementary vein, Jake Xerxes Fussell transforms folk & blues koans for a modern age. ‘From Georgia’s Sea Islands and Chattahoochie Valley to the Mississippi Delta to the Blue Ridge Mountains, Jake is still listening and learning, and coming up with music that takes us to a deep place in the American spirit’, says Art Rosenbaum. Sample his wares here.

The gig takes place on Sunday 30 April from 7.30pm, and tickets are £8.00 in advance. Nab ’em here, or over the counter at Friendly Records, 8 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1HT.
