This is the first visit to the UK by a musician who describes his style as "grafting literate, character-driven song craft and Mid-American roots with a post-punk DIY attitude". It has also been called 'the other side of the Mountain Music', and in his album 'Board up the Windows' he brings to life vivid characters from American life: a hearse driver bound for the cemetery, a Civil War soldier, a couple whose home is threatened by developers, songs powered by heartfelt singing and furious banjo picking.
