A Hymn For Ancient Land
New album released 26th January 2018 on Basin Rock
Born in Sheffield before moving around various parts of Derbyshire, Shropshire and Scotland and
then settling in Moss Valley - an abandoned and forgotten area on the edgelands of South
Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire - it makes perfect sense that 26 year old Jim Ghedi’s music
feels both fluidly transient yet also deeply rooted to a sense of place.
From the finger-picking traditions of 6 & 12 string guitar, his second album, A Hymn For Ancient
Land, reveals his elemental style of playing has expanded into a fuller band set-up alongside the
introduction of his voice, completed with glorious orchestration and dazzling composition that
makes it a truly innovative contemporary record whilst still being rooted in great tradition.
Having toured throughout 2017 supporting tours from Julie Byrne, Nadia Reid & Michael Chapman as well as playing festivals such as the Green Man and Sea Change - he’s setting off for his own live album tour accompanied by good friends Neal Heppleston (Double Bass) & Dbh (Violin) up and down the UK throughout February & March 2018.
