Woodburner is proud to present The Power of One - a showcase for phenomenal solo performers.
The man who gives mighty folk-ravers The Langan Band their name, John is a musical powerhouse the like of which may never be seen again. Having left home in Ayrshire at the age of 16 in pursuit of musical inspiration and a different life, John is an encyclopedia of original and traditional music drawn from a wealth of travel with his trusty guitar and cajon on his back. Who needs a mic when you've got lungs like his?
Inventive grooves and experimental sounds accompany Nina's revelatory songwriting. Come and discover what one woman and her double bass can do, with a startling combination of the operatic, comedic and the downright moronic. A class act.
Randolph takes his audience on an organic and magical journey with just a mic and a loop pedal. Edge of the seat improvisation and witty stories double up over looped vocals, as though sound is erupting from within him in a musical volcano of clicks and glottal stops, Jazz percussive melodies and songs composed out of audience members names. You cannot simply watch him perform; you and Randolph become the performance together. Matthews says “When I am introduced on stage, the wording is always: 'Randolph does his thing… so without further ado, here is his thing…'"
