THE Marine Theatre’s Sunday Sessions continue in May, with a headline set by a well known roots musician.

Jinder plays American roots music, drenched in Delta blues slide guitar, Bluegrass from the heart of Appalachia, Louisiana murder ballads, and country blues.

The free concert is part of a series hosted by the Lyme Regis venue that celebrates the best musicians on the local scene.

2019 promises to be a bumper year for Jinder, with a re-recording of his song ‘Keep Me In Your Heart’ featured in the major motion picture ‘Fishermans’ Friends’. He is also embarking on an extensive tour throughout UK and Europe, and will release his eleventh album ‘The Silver Age’ later in the year.

Jinder’s story began with a childhood spent in the folk heartland of Warwickshire, sheltered by the rolling Avon Dassett hills and steeped in impromptu family jams with friends such as Dave Swarbrick and Richard Thompson of Fairport Convention.

Pursuing a career in songwriting from the age of 14, Jinder founded the band Candlefire in his late teens. The band signed to hip independent label One Little Indian in 2002 and scored a chart hit with single ‘Sorrow Spreads Its Wings’ later that year.

Last year saw collaborations with Billy Bragg, Henry Priestman and more, along with the release of Jinder’s tenth album, ‘Presents…KINGSIZE BLACKFOOT’.

The Sunday Sessions will be held at the Marine Theatre on Sunday, May 19 from 3pm. Entry is free and there is no need to book.
