Live music at Le Cafe Picton

Tour: New Zealand Tour

Jas Josland

Thu 8th Feb
The once shy (I-only-sing-in-the-shower) Jas Josland never knew that moving to South Korea and discovering karaoke would awaken the energetic musician inside of her. A self-taught guitarist and world traveler, New Zealand-native Jas is now pursuing her musical dream by performing indie rock in time zones all around the world. The same path brought Jas to Hong Kong where she found great opportunities such as performing at TEDx and the Secret Island Party. In 2016 the musician made her way to Scotland to play the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and tour Europe. Josland’s debut album “See What You Did There” is planned for release at the end of this year. It brings together stories and adventures from the last few years of her travels. “When you’re in a country and can’t quite speak the language, people watching and body language become your lifeline,” Jas says about her new work. With an interesting resume that includes such job titles as fire fighter, children’s performer, English professor and Superyacht crew, Jas has finally put her fear aside to follow her musical dream. The forecast looks great and Jas is currently planning a summer tour for New Zealand in 2018.

Dan Walsh & Young Folk – Double Bill

Thu 15th Feb
Nominated for best musician at last year’s BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines ‘virtuoso playing and winning songwriting’ (MORNING STAR). Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields. New album ‘Verging on the Perpendicular’ is Walsh’s fourth solo album and again has received much critical acclaim and is accompanied by a hectic touring schedule taking in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Both solo and as a member of the award winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage with Imelda May, Joss Stone and the Levellers, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.
