Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, JINSKI are song writer Stephen Wegrzynski and musician Dave Kennedy, a partnership forged from acoustic roots and the love of a strong melody. Their music touches the borders of folk, country, and pop, keeping alive the song writing tradition whilst remaining resolutely modern. JINSKI play songs that tell stories of love, joy, loneliness and longing, capturing the mundane and the magic in everyday life. Intricate, soulful, beautiful songs, foot stomping, sing-a-long, raucous songs; music for the head and the heart, full of passion and originality
Playing ‘live’ with just two voices and two guitars JINSKI have been touring the UK, honing their craft, chalking up the miles and making new friends wherever they play. They have built a reputation for delivering music for the head and the heart that is full of passion, meaning and originality. As well as headline gigs at clubs and festivals across the country JINSKI have supported Lindisfarne, Eliza Carthy, Joe Jackson, O'Hooley & Tidow and The Poozies on their travels over the last couple of years. In October 2016 they will open two shows for Kathryn Tickell at The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendall Cumbria and The Malting in Berwick, Northumberland. Recent TV appearances include BBC 1 The One Show.
