C Joynes

First US tour for elusive British guitarist, June 2016

C Joynes is one of the UK’s most inventive and highly regarded solo guitarists. Over the last 10 years he has recorded a string of acclaimed albums exploring the fault-lines between traditional music, field-recordings from around the world, free improv and lo-fi experimentalism. His most recent album, ‘Split Electric’ (2016), a collaboration with Nick Jonah Davis, finds him blending the brittle ringing tones of electric folk with overdriven garage blues throw-downs and lumbering muddy-booted psychedelia. This is his first US tour.

“An inheritor to Davy Graham; a lone operator prone to unexpected collaborations, with a repertoire that crosses continents and timezones with consummate ease, and dashed off with a phenomenal, yet lightly applied technique.” ROB YOUNG, THE WIRE

“As much Conlon Nancarrow and Ali Farka Toure as Blind Lemon Jefferson, the compositional mind at work here can take apparently disparate threads of modernism and ethnic tradition and treat them as though they were all archaic blues styles learnt from dusty 78s.” BRUCE RUSSELL, THE WIRE

“His epigrammatic re-castings and re-readings of widely-travelled folk melodies and rhythms from a variety of traditions suggest shared memories that might be intensely universal while seeming strangely out of reach.” KEVIN MACNEIL BROWN, DUSTED MAGAZINE
