Support from James Morgan

James Morgan first picked up a guitar at the age of twelve, in order to become windswept and interesting to women. That didn’t really work, but he is pretty good with a six-string… Hailing from darkest Suffolk, James crafts folk songs for the modern age; his music has elements of folk, rock and punk, as well as a dose of Irish Trad thrown in for good measure. James lists his influences as including Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, Ed Sheeran, The Levellers, and The Pogues. His claim to fame: He was one of the first acts to ever play the John Peel Centre! Not to be missed!
