Gareth Davies-Jones

Combining Folk, Americana, Roots and Acoustic traditions the Irish-born singer-songwriter Gareth Davies-Jones demonstrates an honesty, depth and passion with his beautifully arranged and evocative songs. Compelling you to listen to each word sung and every note strummed his powerful and strong lyrics bring affecting stories, social and political observations which wouldn’t sound out of place in a 1960s Greenwich Village coffee shop or in any contemporary acoustic platform. Some artists sing in the name of one cause or another without conviction, but that is not the case here. Recognised by commentators as an emerging talent in the Troubador tradition Gareth is already a seasoned singer-songwriter/guitarist and has appeared at many of the UK’s best known festivals and venues including Celtic Connections, Brampton Folk Festival, Bromyard Festival, Greenbelt Festival, Off The Tracks, Crossover, The Sage –Gateshead and The Brighton Arena.

His songs have been featured on BBC Radio 2, 3 & 4, BBC Local Radio across the UK, Radio Britfolk, The Acoustic Stage and FolkRadio UK. Gareth also uses his music to support various organisations fighting for social justice such as Traidcraft and Casa Alianza. Alongside solo tours, other collaborations include tours with Yvonne Lyon, Megson, Calum Stewart and Rob Halligan and support work for Karine Polwart, Phil Beer, Spiers & Boden, Waterson Carthy, Steve Tilston, Paul Field and Coco Mbassi.
