James Hollingsworth solo [Acoustic Blues, Folk & Rock, Solo Artist]
South-West England-based James Hollingsworth has a passionate voice and a unique, complex acoustic guitar finger-style, reminiscent of Andalusian guitar, and 'travels in possession of a mean harmonica style' (The Independent), fusing elements of folk, blues, trance, metal and psychedelic rock. A full-time performing musician since 2006, he now adds multi-instrumental live looping mastery to his improvisational style, often with epic results.'This Saturday at The Rose & Crown, we welcome back ace guitarist James Hollingsworth, He plays a great range of music from folk and blues to rock and psychedelia.
