Alternative Folk & Blues

On a Bank holiday Sunday there’s no better place to be than the Cherwell Boathouse.The Lower Boathouse is a spectacular river-side venue, intimate & atmospheric, set alongside the River Cherwell in Oxford. In this context it lends itself readily to summer-time music and theatre art events.

Join us for a drink and an hours musical entertainment with Jess Bishop on vocals/guitar and Max Rafferty on guitar!

Jess Bishop, an alternative folk / blues musician from Cornwall, began playing acoustic shows in the southwest aged 21. After touring extensively around the U.K, Jess supported Max Rafferty on his European tour, resulting in him, along with Nick Brine (Bruce Springsteen, Seasick Steve, Stone Roses), producing her debut album at the legendary Rockfield Studios.

Delicate and timeless, Jess cites Joni Mitchell, Fairport Convention and Fleetwood Mac as influences on the album. The BBC Introducing team has twice chosen the song ‘Keep on Running’ as their track of the day, well in advance of the album’s release. The first single ‘Naked Afternoon’ is available to download (link below) and is already sparking early interest.
