Newsoundwales presents Jim Ghedi and Toby Hay – renowned finger-style guitarists – who’ve come together to blend influences and different styles of playing to create a unique sound for guitar-based folk music.
The duo will be performing an evening of instrumental music from their self-titled debut album released with Topic Records in May 2023. Recorded entirely live – with no edits or overdubs – the album was conceived over three days whilst tucked away amongst the farms, rolling hills and silence of rural Mid Wales.
This new record is the sound of two men in conversation yet speaking in one voice. Jim plays 6-string and Toby plays twelve-string, but the sound they make is of a third entirely new and other-worldly instrument: vast, burnished, delicate, intricate, ancient yet modern – and utterly unique.
“Lovely, fluid folk guitar duets LP recorded in a single, tea-fuelled weekend after weeks of jamming on tour together.” MOJO
