About this event:

Created by Dean Mortlock

The King Arthur, Glastonbury
London-based John Fairhurst makes heavy Blues for heavy times. In equal parts revealing, vulgar, cathartic and thrilling, the virtuoso guitarist is channelling the discontent felt in the western world to pay tribute to –and to update – the very idea of Rock ‘n’ Roll as protest music. And he’s not here to mince his words on his first album in six years, The Divided Kingdom.
“Personal greed has far outstripped the need to support the health of society. British politics is a farce. The Government are liars”, states Fairhurst. Powerful statements require powerful music, and it’s with ragged glory that The Divided Kingdom articulates its point of view.
