Gary Edward Jones and Elfin Bow

Music for the Greater Good has showcased many up and coming musical talents as well as some well-known names over the past couple of years, at various North West venues, predominately at Alexander’s in Chester, while also raising awareness and funds for various charities.

Aardvarker is delighted to once again host a new series of intimate live music shows at Alexander’s with the debut show for 2017 presenting a quality double headliner show of two well known Liverpool artists, Gary Edward Jones and Elfin Bow (who also happen to be husband and wife), on Thursday, February 2.

Proceeds from the evening will be donated to The Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, who are the dedicated funder of research at the forefront of treating paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. For the first time in history, scientists have recorded the reconnection of severed long spinal nerve fibres. This has huge implications for the future of research into spinal injury.

Gary Edward Jones’ exquisite artistry channels many of the great songwriters of the last 50 years. From the laid back melodies of the Californian halcyon days to the mystical depths of the British folk giants like John Martyn and Nick Drake.

The first single from the album Bang Bang Bang was recently released to a packed audience at Constellations in Liverpool, accompanied by a stunning stop motion video by Matthew Dolan.

Elfin Bow’s music has been described as a fairy tale experience for grown ups; pastoral psych-folk with an undercurrent of electronic ambience. A truly 21st Century folk artist she is a storyteller of the finest kind, with one foot rooted in tradition and the other venturing into the future.
