Two current masters of landscape guitar bring their music of place, nature and history to The Forge, Bristol for our summer gig.
price: Tickets Below


Toby Hay and Jim Ghedi belong to a long, transatlantic lineage of musicians who use history, people, place, landscape and nature as ingredients for compositions on the 6 (or 12) strings of a guitar. The likes of John Fahey, Jack Rose, Robbie Basho, Davy Graham are ancestors. The current crop includes William Tyler, Marisa Anderson, Daniel Bachman and C Joynes. We're sure that in the characterful, intimate environment of The Forge this will be a show not to miss.

Toby Hay is a guitarist and composer from near Rhayader in mid Wales. Inspired by history, people and landscape, Toby writes beautifully evocative guitar instrumentals that effortlessly transport the listener to the mountains and rivers of his homeland. Twice nominated for the Welsh Music Prize, Toby has toured the UK and Ireland extensively over the last few years and has built a reputation as a captivating live performer. His latest record, New Music For The 12 String Guitar was recorded at Real World Studios on a custom instrument built for Toby by Roger Bucknall of Fylde Guitars.

Jim Ghedi produces an alternative take on classic folk ideas, exploring themes on landscape and history. Incorporating 6 & 12 string guitar composition, orchestral arrangements and traditional folk song. MOJO magazine praised his most recent album A Hymn For Ancient Land by calling it “Melodically sublime and infused with tradition”, while The Financial Times said “This is landscape music… landscape art. In 2020 Jim will be performing new material from forthcoming album (planned to be released late summer) with his band using more of a focus on self-written and traditional material.
