Glastonbury favourite Jim Moray will be enchanting folk fans with an intimate set in Bracknell on Wednesday.
The acclaimed singer and multi-instrumentalist will be performing tracks from his latest album Skulk at South Hill Park.
Jim, pictured right, released his debut album, Sweet England, in 2003, a year after performing at Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festivals. The record was a hit in the folk world, and Jim went on tour to Canada, Australia, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain, as well as supporting Pop Idol winner Will Young on his UK tour.
Skulk, his fifth record, was released earlier this year and includes songs like If It’s True, reminiscent of a Damien Rice track.
Opening song The Captain’s Apprentice combines an enchanting piano melody with story-style lyrics.
On his website Jim says he sees pop, rock and folk as all parts of the same musical world, and influences from all three genres influence Skulk.
The singer, who won best album of the year and best newcomer at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2004, will be supported by folk duo Black Peak, who released their debut album In Times Back When last year.
