The Big Comfy Bookshop proudly presents the award winning acoustic evening 'Comfy & Acoustic'.
Intimate performances from the best UK (and beyond) musicians covering folk, Americana, singer-songwriters and roots.

Paul McClure
Since giving up his teaching job to follow his dreams and go full time in January 2014, McClure has clocked up the miles finding places to play from Southampton to Manchester, Southend to Bristol with shows at folk clubs around the country including acclaimed performances at Wychwood and Cambridge folk clubs and Roots Music Club, Doncaster, sharing the stage with such touring folk and Americana musicians as Emily Barker, Otis Gibbs (USA) Red Sky July, Sons Of Bill (USA) Red Moon Road (Canada) Edwina Hayes and The Young 'Uns.
"McClure's style of music may not be commercially fashionable these days, but, open, honest, warmly melodic and beautifully honed, it's never going to be without a loyal following." Mike Davies, Folk Radio UK
"One of the bedrocks of the UK Alternative Country, Folk and Americana scene." (3 Chords And The Truth)

Kenneth J Nash
Kenneth J Nash has never done things the easy way, but his courage to confront the darker moments of his past has led him to spending his years on the music scene carving out a thriving repertoire of haunting music that stirs the heart and spears the soul.

With a knack for blending his smooth, emotive voice with a lyrical prowess heavily influenced by his time spent on the road as a musician and DJ that threw his personal life into turmoil, his music resonates as a poignant story of a man who's been to hell and back more times than he can remember, but has come out the other side stronger.

Drawing on his influences (Cohen, Waits, Cash, Reed & Cave), his deftly dramatic songs of love, loss, regret and renewal not to mention addiction bring this artist's dark journey vividly to life. His passion for instrumentation is behind his absorbing production; guitar, mandolin, Irish whistle, cello and double bass combine to give his output a delightful folksy sound.
