Sycamore Sykes is man. A musician kind of man currently based in Cumbria and momentarily indulging in the third person. He is truly sorry. He has written, performed and produced three albums - his second,“The Young Man Blues” received doting affection and generous praise from musician, BBC 6music DJ and general vessel for loveliness, Cerys Mathews. His third album, “If Big Chief Dies” is now available from sycamoresykes.bandcamp.com as a download or limited edition CD. His live setup consists of alternating between the guitar and banjo, and also the use of a suitcase drum and harmonica. He is often accompanied by an overly-qualified backing vocalist/fiddle player, as well as a guru of sorts on the mandola, piano, accordion, melodica, or quite frankly whatever his greedy little omniscient fingers can coax a tune from. His live set is a mix of original songs as well as country, folk, blues, old-timey Americana and Cajun. He is eternally grateful for any support.
