JONATHAN NICHOLAS His style encompasses the various disciplines of pre-war acoustic blues from Robert Johnson & Son House to the styles of Blind Blake & Skip James.

He performs on instruments of the era (1926 Gibson L1 & 1936 Kalamazoo K G14 enabling him to produce an authentic sound and feel, stripping the blues back to its roots. He has just released his debut album entitled ‘Tangled Web’.

BENJAMIN BASSFORD Another Aberjazz favourite. Singer-songwriter Benjamin first appeared at Aberjazz a few years ago when he stepped in at the last minute to replace one of our musicians who had taken ill.

He played in The Globe that night and had everyone dancing outside on the pavement. Since that time we have booked him every year and he has developed a strong local following. This year he has produced his first album and has now become so popular that we have only been able to book him for one gig on Thursday so don’t miss out.

DE FUEGO We would like to welcome De Fuego back to Aberjazz.

They are an award-winning Spanish guitar duo playing energetic instrumental flamenco and rumba-based music. With their fiery upbeat passionate sound and percussive guitar techniques they quickly created a buzz and reputation on the live scene, playing festivals across the UK and across Europe and establishing themselves as a world class in demand live act.
