Simon met Jody when he needed somewhere to stay whilst performing at a folk festival in New York several years ago. They’ve remained friends ever since and although Jody has been touring England every November for several years now we’ve somehow never managed to find a date that’s worked for both of us. We went to see Jody play in Warwick last November and finally nailed a date.
Jody plays a number of different concertinas and sings songs from the US that have often been adapted and had the words changed as they have been passed between performers. He’s very engaging and really brings the stories alive.
“[Jody] really swings. You’ve got to be a truly great…concertina player to….get music like that out of the squeezebox. Great stuff” – Mike Harding
If you only see one concertina player this year, make sure it’s Jody Kruskal.
