About

Welcome to the Julian Gaskell website, a rambling stride guitar pandemic excess of waltzes, tangos and broken jazz.

“such originality, intelligence and appeal that the ability to hear seems like a privilege”  9/10 -Vive le Rock

“a wonderful discovery” R2 *****

“he really is an original- declamatory, vulpine vocals ranting and roaring his splendidly acrid, protestful lyrics over a glorious, urgent ramshackle garage blend of Balkan-Klezmerisms and French gypsy cafebilly”fRoots (albums of the month)

“a gorgeous, gorgeous folky voice”  – BBC Introducing

“Your imagination has to provide the gypsy dancing girls, the rum, and the candlelight but Gaskell does the rest.” – Bright Young Folk
