DHP presents Julie Byrne

Tuesday 23rd May | Doors 19:00 |

American wanderer Julie Byrne’s second album Not Even Happiness vividly archives what would have been lost to the road – bustling roadside diners, stars over the high desert, aching weariness of change, California coast wildflowers, as well as the unsolvable mysteries of love.

With atmospheric instrumentation and electronic flourishes adding to Byrne’s unusual guitar tuning and finger-picked melodies, moving the songs from the front-porch into subtle anthemia. Live, she enchants, leaving rooms mesmerized by her voice and warm presence. This feeling is often shared:

“When the show has that magical spirit every person has contributed, in creating a space of responsiveness to each other through vulnerability, through our unified experience and honesty about our sorrow and our emergence.”

Julie Byrne will be supported by Jim Ghedi.

Jim Ghedi is a 6 & 12 string guitarist and folk singer from a mining village on the outskirts of Sheffield, England. For two years he has toured the United Kingdom in support of his debut album ’Home Is Where I Exist, Now To Live & Die’ which was released by the Welsh label, Cambrian Records.

Having amassed a collection of material inspired by the rural communities and landscapes visited over the last year he’s currently putting the finishing touches to his next collection of songs – combining finger-style Guitar composition, orchestral parts and Traditional Folk Song.
