10th October – Jinski

Based in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, JINSKI are two voices and two guitars and they are the guests at Irvine Folk Club on Wednesday 10th October.
This will be a return visit for JINSKI to the Irvine Club. Steve Wegryznski and Dave Kennedy are JINSKI and the name looks as though it could be an amalgam of the two names. They have provided support to such names as The Proclaimers, Lindisfarne and Kathryn Tickell – an indication that the duo are well thought of by people who could invite just about anyone to be on the same bill.
Steve writes songs and before he teamed up with Dave, he was a solo performer who busked and played his way throughout Europe and Scandinavia. Dave is a multi-instrumentalist and is an accomplished producer and arranger. Together they do Festivals, Clubs, Theatres and House Parties playing music that touches Folk, Country and Pop. Their love of a strong melody is what dictates JINSKI’s choice of material. Hurry Home is their latest album and adds to other albums, EPs and one-off Singles they have recorded.
Wednesday 10tH October is the date to hear JINSKI at Irvine Folk Club and Vineburgh Community Centre in Quarry Road is the place. The Club starts at 8pm and it’s BYOB.
Elsewhere, dates for the annual The Scottish International Storytelling Festival are 19th – 31st October. It’s for everyone irrespective of age. All info from www.tracscotland.org or 0131 556 9579. And towards the end of the month, Dunfermline Folk Weekend takes place. Dates are 26th – 28th October. All part of keeping music live!
