We excited to announce we’re now taking bookings for the excellent folk duo Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith.
In September 2018 Jimmy & Sid will release their third album accompanied by a major UK tour. The album will be a further development of the duo’s songwriting and the contemporary sound that attracted such critical acclaim on their second release, Night Hours.
Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith are one of the finest duos to have emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. Their combination of outstanding vocal work, sensitive instrumentation, and a powerful social conscience has brought them praise from far and wide.
‘Their real strength lies in their original compositions, which range from stories of protest and eviction to the powerful, atmospheric title track about night workers. An impressive set.’ (Robin Denselow, The Guardian)
The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with stunning musical arrangements and vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.
Their critically acclaimed second album ‘Night Hours’ was released in December 2016 on Fellside Recordings. Described as ‘exhilaratingly diverse and full of impeccably crafted songs’, it has cemented the duo’s reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene.
‘To be a great folk singer, you have to be a great storyteller, as Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are clearly aware. The duo are both fine singers and multi-instrumentalists.’ The Guardian
‘Making common cause between antique songs and present circumstances is one of the grails of modern folk, one this young duo pull off impressively…Rousing stuff.’ The Observer
‘Exhilaratingly diverse and full of impeccably crafted and beautifully realised songs.’ Folk Radio UK
We are now taking bookings for the two legs of the new album tour – September 2018 and 28 March – 14 April 2019.
