The Flamenco Thief (Spanish Guitar)

The Flamenco Thief (Spanish Guitar)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EVENING OF BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

Just check him out:
https://youtu.be/TXU4mBlnbLk

Craig Sutton, better known as The Flamenco Thief, is an English guitarist whose phenomenal rise within the DIY music scene has seen him become one of the busiest touring artists in the country.

Specialising in fast rhythmic guitar playing Craig has earned a reputation for mesmerising live performances in which he uses a Spanish acoustic guitar with the Boss RC loop pedal to blend modern rhythms with time-honoured Flamenco techniques.

A particularly resourceful musician, Craig also utilises the guitar as a percussive instrument, layering metronomic hip-hop beats by carefully beating the body; creating a unique energy that few solo instrumentalists manage to achieve.

Craig’s early influences of ska, hip-hop and gypsy swing are evident throughout his music, helping him craft a catalogue of songs that are intelligent but accessible.

Craig’s compositions revere Flamenco’s heritage while embracing music technology, and as a result each song is delicately poised between the classical and contemporary.

Ferris & Sylvester plus support (BBC Inroducing/ Folk/ Blues)


Whiskers, Newquay

FREE ENTRY 

Ferris & Sylvester are songwriters - With clear references in their catchy setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, Ferris & Sylvester sit somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit. Their clever combination of blues, folk and rock n roll has created a distinctive genre of their own.

The London-based pair met two and a half years ago and have since won over the capital with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. This year, the duo released their highly anticipated EP 'Made In Streatham' which they self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label 'Archtop Records', the EP has clocked up millions of Spotify streams, rose to No.1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart and received widespread praise across the board. 

After a packed summer of Festivals including appearances at BST with Eric Clapton, Bath Fest with Robert Plant and main stage at Wilderness with BBC Introducing, the pair are moving into the next phase of their exciting career with new music planned for early 2019. 

'A masterpiece of Brit Folk that should already have made them household names.' - Mojo Magazine

‘A rich and fully realised sound that leaves one pining for a full-length.’ – Rolling Stone Magazine

‘Alt Simon & Garfunkel: dreamy pop with spiky sentiments.’ - The Guardian

‘Harmonies & grounded tones that seem like they were born together.’ - BBC Introducing

‘Here’s the thing: They played to nine people and a dog with charm and gusto, as if they were playing to thousands, like it was the most important gig they had done. That’s how you know they're in it for the right reasons - they love making music, they have something to say, and they want you to hear it.’ - Baylen Leonard
