GAYNOR CRAWFORD PRESENTS:
Sean Taylor has grown to be one of the hottest new names in the European blues/acoustic scene. His incredible passion for performance, sheer talent and song writing of the highest calibre is a testament to his frequent comparisons with John Martyn, Neil Young and Tom Waits. Sean appeared at both Glastonbury and Cambridge festivals in 2010 and 2011. His 2011 Glastonbury performance on the Bourbon St Jazz & Blues stage was widely blogged as being a highlight of the festival. Apart from his 3 headline UK tours to date, Sean has also supported the Neville Brothers, John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater), Band of Horses, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Dukes and Eric Bibb.
Sean's latest album Love Against Death has been hailed a masterpiece by reviewers in the UK and Europe. The album was recorded in Austin, Texas, and produced by Mark Hallman. After hearing Mark's work, with Eliza Gilkyson in particular, Sean realised he would be perfect. Sean wanted to capture his live guitar sound, and Mark is the absolute master in this area. As a session guitarist himself, he knows exactly how to record and mix different guitars. Mark has also produced Carole King, Ani di Franco, Tom Russell, Iain Matthews, as well as working with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Oasis, and Lyle Lovett.
Diners will be on the ground level directly in front of the stage for this night. Bar food will be available from the bar. General admission tickets will have access to seats on the mezzanine level and standing room in the bar area.
