LEON HUNT AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Roots Folk

This month at Forest Roots we are very lucky to have Leon Hunt www.leonhunt.com. He is probably the UK’s foremost banjo player. He plays all styles of 5-string banjo, not just bluegrass but also jazz and Irish. He studied with the renowned American banjo virtuoso, Bela Fleck and he is also a member of the Daily Planet as well as doing lots of sessions for various well known artists. He will be ably accompanied by Chris Haigh on fiddle www.fiddlingaround.com and Paul Kerr on vocals and guitar.

Check him out on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehSTssRUTRk and there is much more …

“This is banjo wizardry in a style totally unique.Leonplays with brilliance and soul – you don’t always find the two together” — Mike Harding – BBC Radio 

“Leon shines brightest when he whips out a rendition of the Pat Metheny tune ‘James’. With this record he manages to smash all preconceptions about what a banjo can and can’t do and leaves you both satisfied and wanting more.” —Guitarist Magazine

“This record shows how world-class Leon’s playing really is.” — Banjo NewsLetter (USA)

Need I say more? Apart from there will be The Flats Family Band, plus local singers and a surprise guest.

So see you all at Forest Roots on Friday, 27th April at The Lord Rookwood, 314 Cann Hall Road, Leytonstone, London, E11 3NW.

Starts 8.30pm (Free entry + whip round)

Stay forever young
