Jon Hicks is a well known guitarist in his native England & Ireland, he utilises DADGAD tuning and has a unique synthesis of folk forms & world rhythms.

Formerly of Big Geraniums and Lia Luachra, Jon Hicks is one of the best folk guitarists and songwriters you will hear today. He injects an eclectic mix of Irish, Spanish, and jazz influences into his work which has the effect of whisking you in moments from Galway to Gallicia to the ‘gator-infested swamps of Louisiana
