Jinski – 23 July

New to Irvine Folk Club is the duo called JINSKI – two very individual guitarists/musicians with strong distinctive voices and they are the guests on Wednesday 23rd July.

JINSKI are Liverpool born Steve Wegrzynski and Geordie boy Dave Kennedy. Steve has been around the music scene for a while, playing tirelessly in the 80’s as a solo performer and going under the name of JINSKI. The same name JINSKI now applies to the duo he formed with Dave Kennedy. Steve does vocal and plays guitar and harmonica while Dave is on guitar and vocals. Steve is also a much respected songwriter. He writes songs from the heart inspired by the trials and tribulations of everyday life.

The musical roots of Steve and Dave lie folk and country. At the Irvine Club, expect to hear foot-stomping, sing-along and raucous songs as well as much gentler and subtly sophisticated material. As well as original numbers, a set list might include Neil Young’s Heart of Gold. Live performances by JINSKI are known for their warmth, passion and humour.

A casual glance at the JINSKI Gig List shows that they fairly clock up the miles and are in much demand. They travel the length and breadth of the UK on a regular basis.

So, to hear the two men who are being tipped to take over the Lindisfarne mantle, get along to Irvine Folk Club at Vineburgh Community Centre in Quarry Road on Wednesday 23rd July for 8pm – and remember it’s BYOB.

Finally, make sure that you have a programme for the forthcoming Marymass Folk Festival. It starts Wednesday 20th and goes on until Sunday 24th August. If you can’t find a programme then just phone Joyce on 01294 551047 for all information.
