Glymjack

October 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

£12

Glymjack’s music is pitched somewhere between the gritty Americana of Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen and the string-laden indie-folk of Blue Rose Code.
Live, Greg McDonald is joined in an acoustic duo line-up by fiddle virtuoso Gemma Gayner, expanding to a trio with bassist Dickon Collinson, delivering a high energy, harmony-rich set of hard-hitting original songs and English folk tunes, which has brought the house down at Cambridge Folk Festival and Broadstairs Folk Week. The line-up tours the UK throughout 2019.

Glymjack’s debut album ‘Light the Evening Fire’ featuring Show of Hands legends Phil Beer and Steve Knightley, and Sam Kelly percussionist Evan Carson, has swept the folk world, with airplay across BBC radio, Acoustic declaring Glymjack “as good as contemporary folk comes” and the accompanying video being viewed 50,000 times on Facebook.
Away from Glymjack, Greg plays in The Phil Beer Band and has composed music for films including Alan Partridge. Greg’s award-winning songs have been called “genius” (Rolling Stone), “inspired” (The Times) and “captivating” (Q magazine).
