Three-time nominee for BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year, harmonica player Will Pound and talented accordion player Eddy Jay will make a highly anticipated visit to the Church of St James, Thrapston on Saturday 11th November at 7.45pm as part of the Oundle International Festival’s Music in Special Places series.
Will is one of the world’s top harmonica players; he has taken the instrument to new places and plays its music in a way that is completely his own. Playing both diatonic and chromatic harmonicas, he creates sounds not usually heard on this little instrument in styles varying from bluegrass, folk, jazz and Arabic to blues, rock, pop and funk. His partner in music Eddy is a maestro of the accordion; his playing of this extraordinary instrument is unique and exhilarating. Together they fill a venue with music full of emotion and atmosphere – listen and watch the ‘Floating Candle’ on www.poundandjay.co.uk for a sound of things to come.
Described by Radio BBC6 Music DJ Tom Robinson as ’one of the most breathtaking live acts I’ve ever witnessed’ advance booking is recommended to secure your seats at what will be wonderfully enjoyable performance.
