Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle
Pentangle were a British Folk-Jazz-Blues band who were active between 1967-1973. The original line up featured Jacqui McShee, John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, Danny Thompson & Terry Cox.
The name Pentangle was chosen to represent the five members of the band. Pentangle soon became one of the foremost names in British progressive music. Their eclectic experimentation drew audiences from the rock, jazz and folk scenes with a repertoire which included ballads, blues classics, jazz standards and reworkings of rock and pop material.
Now touring as Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle the band feature Jacqui McShee – Vocals, Gerry Conway – Drums, Spencer Cozens- Keyboards, Jonathan Noyce – Bass, Martin Winnings – Sax.
Junior Brother is an experimental alternative folk singer/songwriter from Co. Kerry, Ireland, playing sometimes humorous, sometimes heady tunes. Strange stories, poetic and arcane, unfold with reckless abandon upon an idiosyncratic Guitar and Foot Tambourine accompaniment, taking musical influence from his upbringing in rural Ireland.
Chosen as one of RTÉ's Rising Irish Stars of 2018, Junior Brother has been steadily building a fanbase in his current base of Dublin, and around the country, winning followers with his unique and powerful live shows.
Described by Bert Jansch as 'The most underrated guitarist ever", Raymond Ronald Jones, better-known as Wizz Jones, has been performing since the late 1950s and recording from 1965 to the present. He has worked with many of the notable guitarists of the British folk revival, such as John Renbourn, Bert Jansch and Ralph McTell.
His songs have been covered by many, including Bruce Springsteen, who opened his sold-out Wrecking Ball concert at Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany, with Jones's song, "When I Leave Berlin", his second biggest show to date.
