John Blek
"A master of subtlety in the realms of folk-informed pop." - The Thin Air
"His talent is shining brighter with every album." - John Creedon, RTÉ
Nominated for Song of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards, Kansas City.
Ever prolific, Blek has released 5 albums in the last 5 years. Currently he is preparing to release number 6, his new album Thistle & Thorn due in February 2019. 'Salt in the Water' from Blek's current album Catharsis Vol.1, was nominated for 'Song of the Year' at the International Folk Music Awards 2018 at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City. It's been a busy few years and it shows no sign of letting up. Endless tours and recording in Ireland, Europe, UK and USA
keep the Irish troubadour busy.
He is a master storyteller and an inspiring live performer. His beautiful finger style guitar and joyous vocal weave a tapestry that is as poignant as it is skilful. He is a true artist.

John Blek
In John's words – “I spent much of the early part of 2017 in and out of hospital with some mysterious illness that was intent on wasting my now 30-year-old body. My energy was at an all time low and all that gave me joy had been stripped or put on hold. All but my guitar and what was left of my feeble voice. So to fill the days and occupy my mind, I wrote. I wrote of resilience, of pain and uncertainty. Of new love through fevered dreams, of strength, hope, distance, sedation and the cure. I did it every day and recorded the demos sitting up in my hospital bed accompanied by the electronic bleeps of the machines and punctuated by the nurse’s concerned enquiries. I had a reason. For me this is cathartic. For me, this was the panacea.”

The Story Song Scientists - Megan Henwood & Findlay Napier - March dates 2019

The Story Song Scientists - MEGAN HENWOOD & FINDLAY NAPIER - UK touring dates MARCH 2019

Findlay Napier Megan Henwood 12 1.93mb
Findlay Napier & Megan Henwood
We have a few dates left to fill between 3 - 30 March 2019
Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh 2016 and Megan Henwood and Findlay Napier are a few hours into an EFDSS (English Folk Dance Song Society) run songwriting retreat. They are outside drinking their 7th coffee of the morning. Napier's driven nine hours from Glasgow and is a bit wobbly. Henwood's back from a month long writing trip to Nashville and she is jet lagged and delusional. "Fancy writing a song about maths?" Napier enquires. And so the seed for this songwriting partnership was sewn.
Their collaboration has led to the creation of songs about a hermit known as The North Pond Phantom, WBAI host Bob Fass' lifesaving broadcast on 6th Nov 1971, Georg Cantor's struggle with infinity, maths and God and something about Shepherds and leaders. They are yet to write a song about pickup trucks... or beer.

The Story Song Scientists
If ever an artist called on the elements in her songwriting, it's Megan Henwood. The distinguished English singer-songwriter is far too self-deprecating to describe herself as a force of nature, but her third album 'River' reaffirms her unique ability to create roots music of beguiling purity from what's around her.
One of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene Findlay Napier is an insurgent talent that comes on like a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright. Distilled to artful acoustic guitar and Napier's remarkable voice his most recent album 'Glasgow' captures the timeless essence of one of the world's great cities.

MEGAN HENWOOD PRESS:
"Henwood's debut announced her as a promising new voice on the contemporary English folk scene; 'Head Heart Hand' confirms her as one of its finest exponents"- Folk Radio UK
"A powerful set of songs boasting the finest lyrics this reviewer has heard in a while" - Album of the Week, Sunday Express
"Raw nerves are constantly prodded -she has moved far beyond (Folk's) parameters into a world where anything is possible" - R2 Magazine
"She hones her songs so beautifully and the production is superbly judged"
- Country Music People: Americana
FINDLAY NAPIER PRESS:
"...one of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene." - Folk Radio UK
"After his debut release V.I.P.: Very Interesting Persons I wondered how he could possibly surpass such a start, with 'Glasgow' the master craftsman just gets better" - FATEA Magazine
"Napier's epically muscular, grittily raw yet brilliantly nuanced voice, to both comic and emotive effect, allies with some of the most fabulous (literally and figuratively) original songs that anyone's writing today." - Folk Radio UK: Live Review
