TOUR & ALBUM NEWS: John Fairhurst Winter 2018 dates, new album expected 2019


British blues-rock prodigy – JOHN FAIRHURST – is gearing up to greet the new year head on as he blasts out of 2018 with a sixteen date tour this Winter.

Kicking off in Patchwork Studios in Torpoint on the 27th October, Fairhurst will be making pit-stops in Bristol, Exeter, London, Newcastle, Manchester, Southampton, Brighton, and beyond, before bringing proceedings to close at Sheffield’s Yellow Arch Studios in December. Full dates and details outlined below.

Channelling a kaleidoscope of sounds, Fairhurst is a master of shifting between his customary acoustic solo Delta Blues show, to a powerful raw rock duo. With Toby Murray on drums, the pair hit the road in November for a full UK tour to preview material from what will be Fairhurst’s first studio album in 5 years (currently expected 2019).

Following 2014’s highly acclaimed ‘Saltwater’, Fairhurst is currently preparing his first album in over half a decade. The album, scheduled for release in the Spring, promises a real melting pot of diverse musical influences and styles drawn from all of his experience. He will again be working with his long term go-to producers Alex Beitzke and Bradley Spence (Radiohead, Prince, Florence and the Machine, Stereophonics, Iron Maiden, The Strypes, Kasabian).
