JASON MCNIFF is a troubadour who has made eight albums which people call Folk, or Americana, or Alt. Country. There is an Englishness in his guitar playing however, and you might like to think of Bert Jansch or Wizz Jones meeting John Prine & Townes Van Zandt. Time Out writes, “McNiff’s quiet, intimate, fragile-sounding vocals draw you into his world– an almost timeless place, through which he drifts, a romantic loner, a dreamer, at home with the blues.” He is often touted as one of the UK’s most overlooked musical treasures, as a songwriter and finger picker. His latest album ‘Dust of Yesterday’ came out in 2021 and was album of the week in The Times.

“Sutherland conjures up that Americana magic. His songs have the pain, joy and hint of humour that make his art and craft authentic, whether on the banks of the Tennessee or the Thames” Americana UK
