Post-modern troubadour Eric Chenaux announces a series of live shows this July and August including festival appearances at Port Eliot and Supernormal (label-mate Matana Robertsshall also be performing at the latter). The full dates are as follows:-
 
Tuesday 1st August – The Crofters Rights, Bristol with King Ayisoba, Yama Warashi
Thursday 3rd August – 33 Chatsworth Rd, London with Xu Shaoyang & friends, Ginte Regina (Film Screening)
Friday 4th August  – Supernormal, Ipsden (Matana Roberts also part of the line up)
 
Eric Chenaux’s body of solo work is documented across five albums released on the Constellation label since 2006, centering around his dextrous, fried guitar playing juxtaposed with a gorgeously clear and lyrical singing voice. An ingenious recombinant use of traditional folk and consort music tropes in earlier albums has over time evolved into a wholly original form of balladry, shot through with a singular vernacular of improvised electric and nylon-string guitar excursions. Sample sounds from his most recent album Skullsplitter (2015) below.
