Sunjay Brayne at Jurassic Folk, Seaton
by Peter Arnold
After some absolutely stonking Guest Nights, started only this year, Jurassic Folk at the Grove, Seaton, is set to be on to another winner in the shape Sunjay Brayne on Wednesday 2nd May.
Although still only 18 years old, his age belies his musical maturity. A finalist for the BBC Young Folk Awards this year, here are what people have been saying about him: "Solo blues guitarist in the style of Chris Smither with loads of panache and will definitely be one you'll hear from again" -"Sunjay has now reached a maturity as an artist and has a mastery of his craft that far surpasses his age." "Seemingly effortless mastery of the acoustic guitar" – "I have not heard such youthful exuberant joy and accomplishment - coupled with a genuine love for the acoustic guitar, since the first time I saw Ralph McTell play at Les Cousins in 1967".
Born in Derby and raised in the West Midlands, Sunjay began playing guitar aged just 4, and is the first Anglo-Indian to emerge as a major talent since Hamish Imlach & Gerry Lockran in the 1960’s. With such accolades he has got to be worth seeing, and advance tickets at only £5 are available, as is lots more information, on www.eastdevonfolk.org or by phoning 01297 20064.
