Jason McNiff ‘Cairo’

English singer-songwriter JASON McNIFF is set to release a double CD retrospective anthology called Rain Dries Your Eyes, due out on April 28th via Tombola.  Rain Dries Your Eyes spans more than 15 years and includes brand new tracks, previously unreleased material and songs from Jason McNiff’s six studio albums. The collection showcases his fragile, wistful and timeless blend of blues and folk. A modern day troubadour, McNiff started recording in the early ’00s, but he has a sound that harks back to the great folk rock pioneers of the late ’60s/early 70s

Forthcoming dates:

6 April – Lantern Society at Print Works, HASTINGS
22 April – Music’s Not Dead, BEXHILL
2 May – Servant’s Jazz Quarters, LONDON
7 May – Jenny Lind – HASTINGS
20/21 May – Wood Festival, OXFORDSHIRE

STEVE ELLIS is currently putting the finishing touches to his next album that features Paul Weller and a host of mod pals. Shindig! have heard a track of two, and it’s great. More on that soon. In the meantime here’s a pic gallery of cuttings from Steve’s collection with the singing cad’s own captions
