JIM MORAY

Plus special guest Luke Daniels

After five ground-breaking and award-winning albums Jim Moray finds himself at the forefront of a new folk revival in the UK. His music embraces everything from electronica to Johnny Marr-esque guitar rock via symphonic pop, an award winning XTC cover and grime. But at its heart has always been Moray's unmistakeable soulful voice; singing old songs in a new way.

Recently Jim has collaborated with Andy Cutting, Patsy Reid, Martin Simpson and Nancy Kerr on the hugely successful Cecil Sharp Project and similarly acclaimed Elizabethan Project. He's also been making a name for himself as a producer working with Maz O'Connor and Jamie Smith's Mabon, and even presented a documentary on BBC Radio 3 about the traditional song Brigg Fair.

Luke Daniels is an award-winning singer and composer whose solo show uses an original 19th century Polyphon machine as part of the performance.
