**Two Mule Team with guest Willie Klein**
(Willie Klein - guitar and voice, Sue Garner - guitar and voice, Rick Brown - percussion and voice)
Two Mule Team (Sue and Rick) will play a few songs from their repertoire developed over decades together as a couple, a duo and in the groups Fish & Roses and Run On. They’ll then be joined by Willie - and will back him and his soulful voice and idiosyncratic guitar on a set mining his songs written as a member of Blinding Headache, Mofungo and Escape by Ostrich and some covers. This is a world premiere event!!
Over the last decade, C Joynes has ploughed a singular furrow through solo guitar, with a body of work incorporating English folk-tunes alongside North & West African music, and lifting proto-minimalist and improvised techniques from the European classical tradition. On his most recent releases, the '33 Chatsworth Rd' EP on alt.vinyl (2015) and ‘Split Electric’ LP on Thread Recordings (2016), he’s currently exploiting the instrument’s potential for placing overdriven garage blues throw-downs alongside the brittle ringing tones of electric folk.
The duo of Jesse Sheppard (12 String Acoustic) and Drew Gardner (Electric), straddles the story of American guitar in the 20th century by digging into deep folk, jazz, and psychedelia. The outcome sits somewhere between the primitive strains of the Takoma school and the electric reveries of Sonny Sharrock, Ben Chasny, or Buddy Guy. Their debut LP was released on Debacle Records in 2017 and is now sold out. Their forthcoming cassette on Eiderdown Records will be released in June of 2018.
