We are delighted to welcome John Fairhurst to The Lost ARC on December 1st. His duo show will have the place stomping to some of the finest roots, blues, and rock n roll from one of the the great players in the UK today.

Support from local indie-rockers ‘Finn’, all the way from Llandrindod!

JOHN FAIRHURST…
The stand-out guitarist to have emerged from the British blues/folk/acoustic scene, a captivating storyteller, breaking out into new territory with a distinctive, gritty, vocal style and a melting-pot of musical influences.

A masterful musician and songwriter, John is recognised as one of the most creative guitarists on the circuit. Drawing inspiration from fingerpicking maestros, old school blues guitarists, North and Sub-Saharan African players and Indian masters, John references a diverse collection of world genres, blending eastern melodies with jaw-dropping guitar dexterity.

Fairhurst has been wooing the live circuit for over a decade with his astounding guitar skills, garnering a reputation as one of the hardest working musicians on the scene.
Since October 2016 John has been constantly touring, visiting The Netherlands, Poland, Belgium and The Czech Republic on his travels outside of the UK.

Acoustic Guitar Magazine USA recently hailed Fairhurst as one of the Top 3 Resonator guitar players worldwide – the only European on the list.
The Guardian described his debut album ‘Joys of Spring’ as ‘Truly exquisite’. His follow-up album ‘Saltwater’ was met with similar critical acclaim.

John’s unusual vocal style regularly draws comparisons with the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart and Mark Lanegan whilst his virtuoso guitar skills are oft referenced alongside such luminaries as Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Jack White, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton.

“Fairhurst is both a masterful musician and songwriter, who
carefully intertwines music of varying ethnicities into one roaring
whole…with a freshness that is breathtaking… Makes Seasick
Steve’s three stringed blues sound like the two-dimensional
ramblings of a penniless hobo.”
