Open Mic Session with Darren Eedens [+]

Sunday 28th April – Free Entry

Currently playing solo as well as for MIKEY CHUCK RIVERS, THE OLD SALTS, MIDWAY AFTER DARK, LILY FROST and more.

An old soul with the imagination of a child, darren eedens tells stories, bends truths, and creates upbeat rhythmic tracks with hauntingly morbid lyrics. With his many influences ranging from the folk and bluegrass pickers of the past, he uses his unique and powerful voice to captivate anyone within earshot. With an unmatched live energy, he shares his views on life and more often death, shedding a beautiful light on the tragic tale. Standing on tables belting out words beyond his years, audiences are silent, only adding the necessary stomp clamps to many of the entirely acoustic pieces. You can catch darren eedens playing hard and fast, with his banjo, guitar and mandolin as his weapons of choice, sometimes using his voice as his only instrument. It is not uncommon to find darren belting lyrics out at the top of his lungs, standing on top of bars, tables and chairs. He breaks any barriers that one would expect to find when attending a show to see a solo act. His energy is unmatched and from the first note picked literally has the entire audience silent and yet ready for a party.
