Sunset Session with James Dixon

14 July @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


James first played at Treyarnon in 2019 and we are very excited to have him come play again.

A combination of singer, songwriter, guitarist and storyteller, James has strong Folk roots. His Folk influences are musicians from both sides of the Atlantic including Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch, Tom Paxton and Pete Seeger. Moving to Exeter, James played regularly at Philip Henry’s jam night and Topsham Folk Club. One blurry night at Mama Stones even saw him play a few songs alongside Joss Stone. James’ Bromeliad Acoustic Sessions EP was released in 2017 and he has continued to tell the stories behind these songs at hundreds of gigs around the South West.

Developing his style to include his love of slide guitar and Blues, James played at international venues such as, The Byron Bay Brewery (Aus), The Blue Door (NZ) and Deus Ex Machina (Bali). From researching the roots of some mainstream icons, James found the Delta Blues artists of the early 20th century like Son House, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters and the rhythm and blues artists like Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Jackie Wilson. Returning from travelling to live in Cornwall, James joined the South West Blues scene, jamming with artists such as Vince Lee and Shakin’ Jake Landers.

James’ set is a combination of acoustic and signature cigar box guitar, stompbox, foot tambourine and vocals. He creates a full band sound with lingering lyrics. James was recently asked to join the great Blues musician Seasick Steve on his European Tour as his support act. The tour will have James opening for Steve at all 10 venues across Europe including Paradiso (Amsterdam), Metropol (Berlin) and The Roundhouse (London). The tour comes at the same time as the release of James’ latest album, Trespassing Light. This album tells 12 stories through a blend of Folk and Blues that have been crafted over the last two years.
