Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker Saturday 29 September
at the Shelley Theatre
When Josienne Clarke signed to the illustrious Rough Trade Records, its founder Geoff Travis told The Guardian that she writes, “songs that rearrange your internal emotional landscape… reinventing the popular song structure.” Which was nice of him.
With a rare gift for poetic melancholy, the Josienne has a voice to die for performing with guitarist Ben Walker who has a reputation for flawless musicianship and for writing music that sets off a song to perfection. Hailed by Total Guitar magazine as one of 'the best acoustic guitarists in the world right now', a master of intricate and subtle fingerstyle, he sounds like no-one else.
