Jim Ghedi

Born in Sheffield before moving around various parts of Derbyshire, Shropshire and Scotland and then settling in Moss Valley - an abandoned and forgotten area on the edgelands of South

Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire - it makes perfect sense that 26 year old Jim Ghedi’s music feels both fluidly transient yet also deeply rooted to a sense of place.

From the finger-picking traditions of 6 & 12 string guitar, his second album, A Hymn For Ancient Land, reveals his elemental style of playing has expanded into a fuller band set-up alongside the

introduction of his voice, completed with glorious orchestration and dazzling composition that makes it a truly innovative contemporary record whilst still being rooted in great tradition.

Through the inclusion of double bass, violin, cello, harp, trumpet, piano, accordion and numerous other instruments, Ghedi has elevated his unique blend of folk music to a level far beyond that of

his earlier work. Perhaps most remarkable still is how seamless their inclusions feel, rather than wrestling for space, the wealth of instruments float in and out of one another, interlocking

absorbing guitars, gently whirring strings and beating drums.

On top of the community of Moss Valley, a driving force behind much of the creations on this record come from Ghedi’s travels, playing shows in numerous rural towns and villages across the

British Isles. This traversing through remote parts of the UK, Wales, Scotland and Ireland soon brought a desire to capture the full breadth, scale and beauty of the landscapes he was


Having toured throughout 2017 supporting tours from Julie Byrne, Nadia Reid & Michael Chapman as well as playing festivals such as the Green Man and Sea Change - he’s setting off for

his own live album tour accompanied by good friends Neal Heppleston (Double Bass) & Dbh (Violin) up and down the UK throughout February & March 2018.





dbh is a composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist based in Manchester, England. For a long time he has had a hand in an inordinate amount of the great music emerging from Manchester’s music scene, as guitarist of NASDAQ and the FTSE 100, and playing all manner of instruments with Kiran Leonard and Irma Vep, to name but two. Most recently he has been playing live with New York singer-songwriter, Julie Byrne.
