When David Ford goes on tour\, it’s always different. His ever-evolving one-man loop machine show has become the stuff of legend and he has absolutely no fear of over-complicating mat ters\, turning live music into some elaborate performance art. But what un derpins a David Ford show\, whether he’s throwing down a wall-of-noise  solo stomp\, backed by an elite jazz trio or a string quartet\, is the qua lity of his songwriting.\nHis fluent melodicism\, lyrical dexterity and w illingness to tackle complex and controversial subject matter have won hi m two decades of plaudits. So for 2023\, Ford has taken the rare decision to keep it simple\, leave most of the crazy machines at home\, play some of his favourite songs and share stories about where they came from. The result will be a rare opportunity to see “One of Britain’s best” (T he Sunday Times) singer-songwriters… singing songs.\n \;\nJP Ruggier i is a Nashville-based singer\, songwriter\, producer and virtuoso guitari st whose broad range of abilities have made him a much sought-after sessio n player in Nashville and beyond. A graduate of the prestigious Berklee Co llege of Music\, JP continued his education on the New York City singer-so ngwriter scene while earning his living as a side-man for a variety of int ernational artists. As performer in his own right he has written and recor ded two albums\, the latest of which is due to be released in 2023.\nJP ha s played pedal steel and guitar on Tony Award winning Broadway show "Oklah oma!" and has performed and recorded with a wide range of musicians and ar tists such as: Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers)\, Jano Rix (The Wood Brothe rs\, Gabe Dixon Band)\, Viktor Krauss (Bill Frisell)\, Charlie Hunter\, Pe nny &\; Sparrow\, David Ford\, Jarrod Dickenson (Decca Records) and Rai nee Blake (Nashville TV Series) to name a few.\n[embedyt] https://www.yout ube.com/watch?v=E_dTzxy6Z-k[/embedyt]\n\n \; ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.lewesconclub.com/wp-content/uploads/ 2022/11/DavidFord2022.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Europe/London X-LIC-LOCATION:Europe/London BEGIN:STANDARD DTSTART:20221030T010000 TZOFFSETFROM:+0100 TZOFFSETTO:+0000 TZNAME:GMT END:STANDARD END:VTIMEZONE END:VCALENDAR
