Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne JINSKI are Liverpool born Steve Wegrzynski and Geordie boy Dave Kennedy, two highly individual guitarists/musicians with strong distinctive voices. JINSKI have a wealth of great original songs that draw upon acoustic roots and the singer songwriter tradition whilst remaining resolutely modern. JINSKI play songs that tell stories of love, joy, loneliness and longing, capturing the mundane and the magic in everyday life. Intricate, soulful, beautiful songs, foot stomping, sing-a-long, raucous songs; music for the head and the heart, full of passion and originality. Performing on their own or with a flexible line up that includes double bass player Neil Harland, fiddle player Pete Challoner and accordionist Karen Tweed, their 'live' work is a kaleidoscope of musical and lyrical imagery.
As well as headline gigs at clubs and festivals across the country, JINSKI have supported Eliza Carthy, Joe Jackson, O'Hooley & Tidow, Wizz Jones and The Poozies on their travels over the last couple of years.
