Singer-songwriter Albert Jones will be playing at the Eden Café on Friday, September 28, while rising star Kezia will perform on Saturday 29.

Originally from Shropshire, Albert made the move to Cornwall to focus on his music and has enjoyed success in the South West as well as across the UK and Europe.

Blending influences from classic blues, modern folk and contemporary songwriters, Albert’s first solo EP The Door is full of enticing acoustic folk accentuated by his raw, earthy voice.

Albert has previously played at the Eden Sessions, sharing the bill with both Jack Johnson and Paolo Nutini and has supported KT Tunstall, Newton Faulkner and Squeeze at both Altitude and Little World festivals.

His latest offering Needs Must, which came out in August, is composed of simple acoustic arrangements and heartfelt lyrics. The EP features collaborations with some of the South West’s finest musicians, including Harry Harding of the People’s String Foundation and Ryan Jones from Kola and formally The Hitchcock Rules.

Tickets, which are available at the café beforehand, cost £5 or £4 for concessions. 

There will also be a gig on Saturday evening, where Camborne singer-songwriter Kezia will take to the stage. With a voice and vocals mature beyond her years, the young performer creates spellbinding performances that leave audiences wanting more.

This summer, Kezia not only played at the Boardmasters Festival, but also supported Feeder at their recent Lusty Glaze gig.

Tickets for Saturday’s gig cost £6 and £5 for concessions.

Ashley van Dyck, Eden Café Manager, said: “Between Albert’s warm vocals and Kezia’s unforgettable stage-presence, the Eden Café has all the right ingredients for the perfect weekend.”

Doors open at 7pm on both Friday and Saturday. Music starts around 8:30 and goes on until late.

There will be a selection of food served until 9pm, including sharing platters, seasonal hot food, and delicious homemade cakes.
