Joachim Cooder is known for his collaborations with his father Ry Cooder, and brings his debut album ‘Over The Road I’m Bound’ on this tour, which also features Sam Amidon, another great singer on the Nonesuch label.

“Ry Cooder’s son beats his own path to fame” (MOJO). Joachim Cooder has been a sought-after percussionist for two decades now, on now-legendary recordings with his father, Ry Cooder, like the landmark Buena Vista Social Club sessions and on his own with artists like Ali Farka Touré, who inspired Cooder to take up the mbira.

On the new album, the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist uses the plain-spoken songs of country-music progenitor and banjo player Uncle Dave Macon as a jumping-off point, playing with the lyrics and reworking melodies for his chosen instrument: an electric mbira (a variation on an African thumb piano).

“Like an Appalachian mountain folk song crossed with 1980s electro and given a subtle funk rhythm… an intoxicating blend.” (Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2).

This is a seated Bristol Beacon & Serious Presents show at St George’s, Great George St, Bristol BS1 5RR.
