Fairfield is delighted to welcome Jon Sanders back to share his newest album featuring more of his “quantum leaping” music. Jon has circumnavigated the globe many times over the last 25 years,entertaining thousands of listeners along the way. His compositions for drop D guitar, bouzouki and ukelele have been covered by bands and used in film, television and radio and he has performed in an impressive number of bands in the modern acoustic scene. His last three albums, Zoukelele, Latitudes and Twigs of the Neem Tree have been critically acclaimed, earning him the title of “bold explorer” and his music as “pure magic”
JON”S new album “NADA BRAHMA” has been five years in the making. It features an ecclectic blend of self penned afrofunk, celtic and Kirtan chanting styles reflecting the myriad of emotions in life. “I was inspired by the 1983 book “Nada Brahma -the world is sound by Joachim Berendt which celebrates the universal vibration in all matter. Matter has a frequency therefore a pitch. Therefore its music. This album hopefully acknowledges that and also captures the joy within as an authentic and positive expression of ourselves,” he says. It’s a progression of the “deeply meditative, impishly playful, jazz tinged” recognition Zoukelele received.
Jon will be joined by his 24year old daughter from Dingle adding vocals.
An enriching evening of beautiful music in the Fairfield Ballroom.
