Joe Wilkes & Edwina Hayes
(with support by Iain Wilkinson)
Canterbury Acoustic is a new music collective showcasing the best of established and rising talent in the world of acoustic music from the worlds of folk, jazz, blues, and all points in between.
Joe Wilkes is the leading voice of a new beatnik generation. With poetic lyrics that evokes Dylan at his creative height and virtuoso guitar playing that makes reference to Drake at his best,Wilkes' songs combine the personal and political, with passion, humility and grace.
Edwina Hayes is celebrated for possessing - in the words of none other than Nanci Griffith - "a voice that is as sweet as the angels". An accomplished singer-songwriter who splits her time between touring the UK and performing as a regular on the Nashville scene, her music blends the finest elements of country and folk.
Iain Wilkinson is a singer-songwriter and guitarist whose songs combine elements of English, Celtic and Latin folk music
