harmonica and accordion wizards Will Pound & Eddy Jay
Simon Mayor and the Mandolinquents return to Arlington Arts on Friday (8pm) for another evening of musical charm and infectious fun. Adding to their unusual mix of musical styles and incredible range of instruments, they welcome harmonica and accordion wizards Will Pound & Eddy Jay to share the stage.
With humour and wit, the Mandolinquents provide an excellent night of entertainment. With critically acclaimed albums and concerts, these musicians are an absolute must see.
Will Pound is one of the finest harmonica players of his generation whose innovative style pushes the boundaries of his instrument and the folk genre. Three-time nominee for BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year, he has held the accolades of FATEA Instrumentalist of the Year (2013, 2014) and Spiral Earth Magazine Musician of the Year (2015).
Eddy Jay is a real master of the accordion with the ability to turn it into an orchestra at his fingertips. A key player in the arrangement of the hit stage musical version of Noel Coward’s ‘Brief Encounter’ (Kneehigh theatre) which toured US theatres including Studio 56 on Broadway and former member of Newfolks with Oliver Wilson-Dickson, Mabon, he is eclectic in both his performance and arrangements.
Together Pound and Jay create a sound and show like no other.
