Event Details


Justin follows up on his critically acclaimed albums Winter Pick (2014) and Barefoot Wonderland (2017) with the release of his 2021 full length, Sleeping Like A Maniac, produced, recorded and mixed by Jeff Lang with Lady In The Field and Flags Staked Upon The Hill mixed by Isaac Barter and mastered by Adam DempseySLAM follows the release of two singles in May this year, Blank Page + Flags Staked Upon This Hill. Curiosity and commitment drive Justin’s continuing exploration of roots music pathways - acoustic blues, bluegrass and folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic. His third album turns the focus from an Americana bent to his take on UK roots in what he calls ‘folk impressionism’.

A man. A guitar. A song. Justin Bernasconi is recognised globally as a master folk guitarist. He takes the essence of the time-honoured trinity to captivating instrumental heights. Together, guitar and words plumb the depths of the human condition but also illuminate the little joys that make it all worthwhile. Alongside the intricate sculpting of strings he melds candid stories with mellow vocals to create evocative moods with ease. S.L.A.M. offers everything you’d expect from this consummate artist and so much more.
