“A brilliant finger-picker and songwriter…shining a welcome light into an underrated genre” ★★★★☆ Q

“A Chastening meditation on Britain in 2021” 8/10 UNCUT

“Melodically sublime… although Ghedi’s music is infused with tradition, it’s very much experiencing the present” ★★★★☆MOJO 

Jim Ghedi has received BBC 2 play from Mark Radcliffe, BBC 6 Music airplay from Gideon Coe, Cerys Matthews and Elizabeth Alker and BBC 3 play from Verity Sharp, he has recently had a book of poems & songs Spring Of Yarrow’ published through Ration Books.  Jim hails from the South Yorkshire hills and although clearly well versed in the history of British folk music, he stands out as a potential torch bearer for a new generation of respectful yet experimental performers.
Whilst Ghedi’s previous idiosyncratic take on folk has often been instrumental, his new album ‘In The Furrows Of Common Place’ is a deeper plunge inside himself to offer up more of his voice to accompany his profoundly unique and moving compositions. Departing away from previous work, here he draws from social-political observations, contemporary songwriting, historical & traditional material and a rich varied number of other inspirations and sources, such as the poetry of John Clare, the writing of Robert Macfarlane and the works of South Yorkshire author Barry Hines.
