Findlay Napier & Megan Henwood + Dom Prag at St Edith's Folk

If ever an artist called on the elements in her songwriting, it's Megan Henwood. The distinguished English singer-songwriter is far too self-deprecating to describe herself as a force of nature, but her third album ‘River’ reaffirms her unique ability to create roots music of beguiling purity from what's around her.
One of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene Findlay Napier is an insurgent talent that comes on like a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright. Distilled to artful acoustic guitar and Napier's remarkable voice his most recent album ‘Glasgow’ captures the timeless essence of one of the world's great cities.
They are supported by up and coming young singer-songwriter, Dom Prag, from Southampton.
‘Dom Prag…excellent performer. Different, subtle, young - snappy guitarist too, engaging; did one cover but his own material was best. If you run a club check this guy out. He is a good sport too. Book him !!!!!!!!!!’ (Anthony John Clarke, folk musician)

Dom Prag at Redcatch Folk Club

Dom Prag is a young singer songwriter from Southampton whose dazzling debut album, ‘Young Man on a Ferry’ came out in December 2018 and straight away began garnering praise, awarded Album of the Month by the Richard Harris Folk and Blues Show on Blues and Roots Radio and played on BBC Radio Sheffield among other stations. Dom has played at folk festivals including Wickham, Purbeck Valley, Wimborne and the South Downs folk festival. He has performed in folk clubs from North Yorkshire to Devon for the last two years and demand for his performances is growing. He plays a classical guitar he inherited from his father, who taught him to play. His style is a breathtaking fusion of classical and folk techniques. He writes his own songs and the tunes he composes are remarkable for their musicality and depth. Often deceptively simple, they have a vivid dynamic range. Another of his passions is traditional folk songs, particularly those that express injustice.  His arrangements of traditional songs are astonishing in unexpected ways while losing none of the original purity.

'Dom Prag takes the place by storm with his energy, wonderful singing and beautiful Spanish guitar playing - he's a seriously talented young folk singer on the way to great things.’ (Mike Peach, The Anchor Folk Club)

Dom makes a welcome return to Bradninch after a busy summer touring in Yorkshire and playing at folk festivals in the South and South West. During that time, Greg Russell has played tracks off Dom’s stunning debut Album ‘Young Man on a Ferry’ on his New Traditions programme on BBC Radio Sheffield and the album garnered an excellent review in Shire Folk.

Although not yet well known in Devon he is playing festivals and clubs across the country. Watching him play marks him out as a performer who is destined to be on the leading edge of his generation and a really nice guy. We are not alone in this observation’ (Flaxey Green)

 ‘Dom has played our club twice and each time we were blown away by his songs, musicianship and voice; he is a breath of fresh air. His well-written and thought provoking songs grab your attention.
