Honest and heartfelt music from Jamaica played on a 1 string guitar
price: Tickets Below


Brushy One String

In a society where talent abounds and opportunity is scarce, a genuinely unique and courageous underground artist fights to rise up from obscurity into the pages of history...

This is Andrew Chin—a.k.a. Brushy One String—the son of the late great Freddie McKay, one of Jamaica's most renowned artists. Like his father, Brushy has reached the hearts of many through the power of original song, fascinating audiences since he was a child with only a ONE STRING GUITAR! Established in Jamaica where he is revered by both young and old, financial success and professional management have eluded Brushy, until now.

This talented and endearing artist was featured in the award-winning documentary RiseUp, directed by Luciano Blotta. Due to an overwhelming amount of enthusiasm and encouragement from fans, RiseUp Entertainment is now managing Brushy and building his worldwide fan base.

With a newly released riveting studio album entitled “Destiny,” Brushy is already creating a buzz in the States, catching the attention of music listeners everywhere with his rich bluesy melodies and distinctive lyrics. With a soulful voice and infectious guitar melodies, Brushy “soothes souls and rough hearts” as he continues to perform from Jamaica to a worldwide growing audience.

Dubi Dolczek

Support on the night will be provided by our favourite (are there multiple?) intergalactic blues smith, Dubi Dolczek. We've invited Dubi to play a stripped back set to compliment our solo headliner, and so instead of a full band backing him he's going to choose 2 members of the band to bring along and play as a trio. We've purposely avoided asking him who's joining him. We didn't want to ruin the surprise! Make sure you don't miss this set as you're transported from the swamps of the Haunted Lagoon all the way to outer space.

DJing on the night is The Grey Area's own Siegfried Translator, playing a host of outernational grooves and oddities to get you moving.
