ONE of the most talked about guitarists and songwriters in the North West will be bringing his intriguing brand of blues to Kendal this weekend.

Denis Jones uses a loop station and an array of samplers and effects to create complex orchestrations of beat-box rhythms, multi-layered vocals and other-wordly sounds which veer from folk and blues to bass-driven electronica.

Denis’s second album Red + Yellow= is out now, along with a limited edition 10” vinyl EP including remixes by Graham Massey of Manchester electronic legends 808 State.

Brewery music programmer Mike Chadwick said: “Denis is a completely unique and intriguing artist whose music cannot be pigeonholed into any specific genre. He has also collaborated with artists all over Europe and earned a place as a regular on the festival scene including Glastonbury.”
