Free daytime recitals in which Newcastle University’s BMus in Folk and Traditional Music degree students give performances that show the culmination of their four years of study.
Each concert will be different, conceived and created by one student, but usually with a band of others to brung in depth and diversity.
All of these performances are assessed and form a significant part of a student’s final mark, and for this reason no Latecomers will be admitted once an individual recital is underway.
2pm – Jim Richardson (Guitar)
Guitar player Jim Richardson has grown up with many musical influences including Traditional Irish Music, Gypsy Jazz and Classical. While studying Traditional Folk music at Newcastle University he has been tutored by guitarists Chris Newman and Mick Wright.
His influences include the genre hopping multi-instrumentalist Sandy Bull, Indian Classical musician Annapurna Devi and the Irish fiddle player Kevin Burke. In his final recital on the Folk Degree his repertoire will span multiple genres including Folk, Jazz and Bach.
