to the web site of Bernard Hoskin, acoustic roots singer/songwriter and
multi-instrumentalist from Cambridge, England. I am an
experienced performer and live play a mixture of original songs,
traditional folk and covers on 6 and 12 string guitar and mandola.
There is a diverse range of influences that go to create my distinctive
and original sound which is based upon English songwriting and world
music rhythms as well as the more common folk, country and blues styles.
I have opened for people such as Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, Harvey
Andrews, John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee, Julie Felix, Clive Gregson,
Phil Beer, Andy Irvine, The Oysterband, Peter Knight's Gigspanner,
Johnny Dickinson, Tim Edey, O’Hooley and Tidow, Josienne Clarke
& Ben Walker, Blazin' Fiddles, Ninebarrow, Wild Willy Barrett,
Steve Tilston, Heidi Talbot and many more! If you are interested in booking
me for your event you can watch videos on the demo
my new album, Venice In The Evening. You can listen to all
the tracks here and download for free. For the best sound quality you can buy the album for £6 from Bandcamp.
Here's the full show from my
Facebook Live performance on 29 April 2020.
you ever thought of hosting a concert in your own home? The format is
simple - you gather some friends in your living room and I will give
you an intimate, unplugged concert performance. This kind of evening is
a lot of fun and you don't need a big audience to make it worthwhile.
