The mesmerising American banjoist, fiddle player and singer Jake Blount is “absurdly talented in about every way a musician can be” (LA Times).


He is not only a stunning musician but also a foremost interpreter of Black folk music from the past, defiantly recontextualising traditional songs for the present day – shining a light on the major, often overlooked, contributions that Black, indigenous and LGBTQ artists have made to American folk traditions. Tonight, his trio – featuring double bass ace Nelson Williams and gifted multi-instrumentalist Gus Tritsch – will play his new album The New Faith, full of evocative songs, including Black spirituals and blues, and footstomping fiddle.
