Jess Vincent is a highly original artist with a growing following in the folk/indie/Americana acoustic scene. This September tour previews the vibrant, new and infectiously catchy songs from soon to be released album (her fourth). This new release, recorded in her home studio in Bulgaria, brings with it a thread of the people, stories, colours, flavours and instruments from her new life there as well as Jess’s trademark subtle arrangements on guitar, baritone uke, banjo and harmonium, along with her uniquely soaring vocal. Jess will also be playing old favourites from her previous three albums.

The full band is Jess: vocals, guitar, uke, banjo; Joe Chowles: vocals, guitar; Graham Brown: percussion, keyboards harmonium; Hannah Krakiec: vocals, percussion.

“Paul McClure is one of the hardest working and best example of a true British Troubadour playing today”.
 McClure is from Rutland, England where he lives with his wife and daughters. He takes his inspiration from his world and the people in it.

Rutland Troubadour, aka Paul McClure.  A master of the stage, whether it’s an intimate house concert or a full-on festival set… interspersing his trademark dry humour between some excellent and thoughtfull songs his shows are a delight, making him one of the most in-demand performers in the country and a significant player on the UK roots scene.” – Jeremy Searle, R2 magazine
