John Blek in the Swiss Cottage, April 13, 2019

Ever prolific, Blek has released 5 albums in the last 5 years. Currently he is preparing to
release number 6, his new album Thistle & Thorn due on 1st Feb 2019. ‘Salt in the Water’ from Blek’s
current album Catharsis Vol.1, was nominated for Song of the Year at the International Folk
Music Awards 2018 at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City. It’s been a busy few years
and it shows no sign of letting up. Endless tours and recording in Ireland, Europe, UK and USA
keep the Irish troubadour busy.

He is a master storyteller and an inspiring live performer. His beautiful finger style guitar and
joyous vocal weave a tapestry that is as poignant as it is skilful.
