Common Ground

Jake’s second album, “Common Ground”, sees him collaborating with Bulgarian / Polish virtuoso guitar duo Lot Lorien. “Common Ground” re-energises traditional British folk lyrics with new musical settings, placing Jake’s instantly-recognisable English voice against Bulgarian-tinged rhythms and melodies, and its breathtaking instrumental tracks weave Jake’s distinctive Del Vecchio Dinâmico resonator guitar into Kiril Georgiev and Adam Jurewicz’s intricate acoustic and classical guitar arrangements.


 

“Common Ground” grew out of chance encounters with both members of Lot Lorien in the Jephson Gardens in Leamington Spa. The CD cover and 16-page booklet feature striking black-and-white infra-red images of the Gardens, specially taken by local photographer, David Eaves, to reflect the significance of this extraordinary location to the project.
