It’s another hectic year of shows that has included Glastonbury and more and brings the year to a close with an awesome tour and of the back of a new album, with tracks to be showcased at the Cluny on Wednesday 15th November. 

The last album was a big, loud dirty affair for The John Fairhurst Band, with John citing a melting pot of influences from Jack White and The Black Keys to Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath, Hendrix, Zappa, Iggy Pop, Captain Beefheart and Led Zeppelin. Alongside the heavy electric guitar riffs, face-melting solos and unmistakeable growling vocals we have to come expect from John Fairhurst.

John references a diverse collection of world genres, blending eastern melodies with jaw-dropping guitar dexterity, and a real bluesy undercurrent. These songs, often played live as part of John’s solo set, are a lesson in the art of fingerpicking blues and acoustic folk.

John Fairhurst plays The Cluny on Wednesday 15th November.
