James Hollingsworth's Nights [Psychedelic Rock, Solo Artist]
Psych Rock Night! James will be promoting the latest single from his album 'Thirteen Moons'.
CICCIC - a great venue for listening audiences in a modern and airy setting. The way that guitars are used today is very different from how it was 20 years ago, and now with loop pedals solo guitarists can create music and sounds that can match any band, but this complex and hard to master looping is only mastered by a few and this live music night presents one the best Loopmasters of guitar in the South West. Following on from the success of his Pink Floyd Nights, James Hollingsworth summons up his inner Progness to embark upon a journey beyond 3 chords, playing his own compositions well as classics from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Kate Bush, The Beatles, Roy Harper, Jeff Buckley, Greg Lake, Marillion and more (maybe even a bit of Floyd). An all-live uniquely solo show, James uses modern Looping technology, with live percussion, voice and guitar effects to build complex arrangements in real time, no pre-recorded backing tracks are used!
"James Hollingsworth plays a darn mean acoustic guitar and knows his way inventively around his pedals. He’s an energetic and animated front man and has a fine set of vocal chords. His music was one of the weekend’s highlights." - Andy Read – Winters End Festival
"James has an amazing voice and is a superb songwriter, guitarist and performer." - Loop Masters Night, CICCIC, Taunton
