A MUSICIAN whose song appears in the hit film Fishermen's Friends will perform at the Sunday Sessions at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis.

Roots musician Jinder plays American roots music, drenched in Delta blues slide guitar, Bluegrass from the heart of Appalachia, Louisiana murder ballads, and country blues.

The free concert is part of series by the Lyme Regis venue that celebrates the best musicians on the local scene. 2019 promises to be a bumper year for Jinder, with a re-recording of his song Keep Me In Your Heart featured in the major motion picture Fishermans Friends.

He is also embarking on an extensive tour throughout UK and Europe, and will release his 11th album The Silver Age later in the year.

Jinder’s story began with a childhood spent in the folk heartland of Warwickshire, sheltered by the rolling Avon Dassett hills and steeped in impromptu family jams with friends such as Dave Swarbrick and Richard Thompson of Fairport Convention.

Pursuing a career in songwriting from the age of 14, Jinder founded the band Candlefire in his late teens. The band signed to hip independent label One Little Indian in 2002 and scored a chart hit with single Sorrow Spreads Its Wings later that year.

*The Sunday Sessions with Jinder, Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis, Sunday, May 19, 3pm. Free entry.
