12-string guitar magic from the UK

Fusing the intricate guitar magic of John Fahey with the beauty of Debussy. Saturday the 23rd, Jack Allett and Cam Deas from the UK will showcase their impressive technique mixed with cascades of echo and haze in the intimate setting of a living room concert at the Zwijssenpand in Tilburg.

Cam Deas + Jack Allett

Cam Deas + Jack Allett

25-year old guitarist Jack Allett (who is also half of Towering Breaker),  takes the Takoma School of John Fahey, Robbie Basho et al. as the starting point for his compositions and improvisations, and goes on to incorporate psychedelia, neoclassicism, minimalism, jazz and more into his unique take on modern folk/blues fingerpicking. He has a new album out on Blackest Rainbow Records.

Since the dissolution of his previous band, Cameron Deas started a solo career under the name Cam Deas. He has released various EPs under the record labels Blackest Rainbow, Dead Pilot, Dirty Demos and others. Deas plays the guitar, and notably the 12 String Guitar. His music is a mix of acoustic and electronic sounds, which “conjures up an air of ancient smoke-wreathed ritual with ghostly moans and 12 string acoustic guitar ragas that disappear into cascades of echo, haze and distortion.”
