C Joynes / Dean McPhee - The Triangle - Bradford

We're excited to announce that guitarists C Joynes and Dean McPhee will be appearing at The Triangle for an intimate concert of feeling, intricacy, and musical invention.C JOYNESOver the last decade C Joynes has ploughed a singular furrow through solo guitar, with a body of work that incorporates English folk-tunes, North & West African music, and proto-minimalist & improvised techniques from the European classical tradition. He has released 7 albums to date, including 'The Wild Wild Berry’, a collaboration with singer Stephanie Hladowski (fROOTS Editors Choice Album Of The Year 2012, MOJO Top 5 Folk Albums 2012). He has played extensively across Europe and the USA, sharing bills with performers including Shirley Collins, Martin Carthy, Comus, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Alasdair Roberts, Richard Dawson, Jack Rose, Glenn Jones, Josephine Foster, Sir Richard Bishop, Six Organs Of Admittance, and 75 Dollar Bill.Having shifted to solo electric guitar on his most recent releases, the '33 Chatsworth Rd' EP on alt.vinyl (2015) and ‘Split Electric’ LP on Thread Recordings (2016), Joynes is currently exploiting the instrument’s potential for placing overdriven garage blues throw-downs alongside the brittle ringing tones of electric folk. The '33 Chatsworth Rd' EP also previews solo versions of tunes appearing on the forthcoming album ‘The Borametz Tree’, recorded with long-term fellow travellers Dead Rat Orchestra at The Roundhouse in London and scheduled for release in 2019.“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 WIREhttp://cjoynes.tumblr.com/http://cjoynes.bandcamp.com/DEAN McPHEEBingley-based guitarist Dean McPhee is now firmly rooted in the collective consciousness of the Upper Calder Valley, following jaw-dropping performances at venues including the Trades Club, The Golden Lion, and Tor Festival. For the uninitiated we strongly advise becoming acquainted with his powerful oeuvre. Dean's ability to consistently captivate audiences through meditative harmonics and shimmering melodicism is something few can achieve with such control, expansiveness and dexterous ability on a single instrument. His albums 'Four Stones', 'Fatima's Hand', and 'Brown Bear' are brimming with finely worked compositions always performed 'in the moment'; and this approach is completely translated to his live shows which resonate powerfully through the projection of a singular artistic vision via six strings, the considered use of effects, nice warm valves, and a couple of speakers.https://deanmcphee.bandcamp.com/https://deanmcphee.co.uk/Tickets: £6
