Beck SiÓn and Jonathan Kershaw at the Railway

Sean Kershaw"Haunting, dark sounds with Gothic and Celtic origins..."

Jointly coming from musical backgrounds in rock, classical and traditional Celtic music, Australian singer Beck SiÓn (related to English singer Kate Bush) and acclaimed, UK guitarist Jonathan Kershaw create a supernatural and melancholic soundscape with siren-esque vocals to suit.

Beck and Jonathan came together to discover mutual origins in their separate work. Both influenced through time by both dark, rock music and seductive traditional sounds, their individual music not only compliments one another but works to create a serene and preternatural atmosphere with enough catchy hooks to keep audiences engaged.

With their blend of haunting, ghost ballads and dark, verdant Celtic themes, Beck SiÓn and Jonathan Kershaw are currently performing together as part of their "Beautiful Ghosts & Bizarre Tales" tour.

Beck SiÓn & Jonathan Kershaw play the Railway Venue in Bolton on 14th March and also appear at the Topic Folk club in Bradford in November
