The BBC6 music resident poet presents his stunning new live up-close and personal show.
Fri 28 Oct
Known better in folk circles as Squeezy , John Spiers is well known for his long-standing duo partnership with Jon Boden in the formidable Spiers & Boden as well as being a key member of Bellowhead, the most successful folk band in recent history. John was also a member of Eliza Carthy's band on her 2002 Mercury nominated album, Anglicana. Mixing infectious dance tunes with incredibly sensitive and moving slow airs, John's solo shows are a mixture of traditional material and his own compositions interspersed with an easy-going, humorous and informative banter. Mainly self-taught and influenced by both local musicians and leading players in the folk world, John has developed a very exciting and danceable style on his instruments which retains the raw rhythm of the morris while developing tunes in exciting and musical ways. John is also a composer and many of his tunes have been adopted and are played in music sessions up and down the country.
