About the Event
Come and celebrate ST PATRICK'S DAY with style at Bar Silo. Featuring traditional Irish Food, kegs of local beers +++ Folk & Blues PHENOMENON James Dixon.
We're so excited to have James Dixon playing for us, having recently been on tour as the support for Seasick Steve, he is a highly talented folk and blues musician. Playing for us some Trad Irish classics plus his signature cigar box guitar, stompbox, foot tambourine and vocals.
A combination of singer, songwriter, guitarist and storyteller, James has strong Folk roots. His Folk influences are musicians from both sides of the Atlantic including Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch, Tom Paxton and Pete Seeger. Moving to Exeter, James played regularly at Philip Henry’s jam night and Topsham Folk Club. One blurry night at Mama Stones even saw him play a few songs alongside Joss Stone. James’ Bromeliad Acoustic Sessions EP was released in 2017 and he has continued to tell the stories behind these songs at hundreds of gigs around the South West.
James’ set is a combination of acoustic and signature cigar box guitar, stompbox, foot tambourine and vocals. He creates a full band sound with lingering lyrics. James was recently asked to join the great Blues musician Seasick Steve on his European Tour as his support act. The tour will have James opening for Steve at all 10 venues across Europe including Paradiso (Amsterdam), Metropol (Berlin) and The Roundhouse (London). The tour comes at the same time as the release of James’ latest album, Trespassing Light. This album tells 12 stories through a blend of Folk and Blues that have been crafted over the last two years.
The fabulous Kim's Kitchen will be serving up an Irish classic: guiness beef stew with dumplings (plus with Vegan and G/F options available as always) Cash and card payments both accepted. Available from 6:30pm until sold-out (approx 8:30pm)
