More information about Jim Ghedi / Yakka Doon tickets

Jim Ghedi hails from the South Yorkshire hills and although clearly well versed in the history of Folk music, he stands out as a potential torch bearer for a new generation of respectful yet experimental performers.

Whilst Jim Ghedi’s previous idiosyncratic take on folk has often been instrumental, exploring the natural world and his relationship to it through his music, as seen on 2018's ‘A Hymn For Ancient Land’. His new album ‘In The Furrows Of Common Place’ is a deeper plunge inside himself to offer up more of his voice to accompany his profoundly unique and moving compositions. Departing away from previous work, here he draws from social-political observations, contemporary songwriting, historical & traditional material and a rich varied number of other inspirations and sources, such as the poetry of John Clare, the writing of Robert Macfarlane and the works of South Yorkshire author Barry Hines.

His new album ‘In the Furrows of Common Place’ released this year with Basin Rock record label is available through all outlets, plus there is a limited 300 special edition copies available through the Dinked Edition series in any local indie record store in the UK.
