We are delighted to welcome guitarist Ian Carr with his band, The Various Artists, to the ABM roster. There’s a fine line between musical genius and a vortex of chaos and Ian Carr has long danced along it like a reckless Highland dancer with his laces undone. fRoots’ writer Andy Cronshaw once described him as “the most innovative and sympathetic guitarist that Britain has produced in years, in any genre…”
Ian is joined by The Various Artists, the roof raising Swedish/ Scottish live incarnation of Ian’s acclaimed, “Who He?” CD, featuring Maria Jonsson (viola d’amore, vocals), Staffan Lindfors (double bass/ vocals), Laura Wilkie (violin/vocals) Thomas Gibbs (piano/harmonium/clarinet/vocals).
They have a new album to tour in 2020 and are looking forward to bringing this to the UK for summer festivals and for an autumn tour (12 to 22 November 2020) – get in touch if you have dates to offer as you may become their anchor date!
