Widlerthorn is the the name given to the artwork and music of singer-songwriter. John is the son of a travelling musician who started his careerer in Aisa, playing gigs in Sri-Lanka, Malasia and Singapore and India. Having played in secret gigs and concerts around Europe, he recently returned to Chennai in India to make a recording with Carnatic/ Bollywood musicians.

Jon has been described as having a "unique and powerful, emotive voice, tinged with dark operatic tones and 'sufi-style' flourishes", with his music being backed by a wave of primal rhythms, clanging dulcimers, electric guitar swells and haunting violin textures.

David Barker, the organiser of Friday's event, says, "This man has a voice that resonates in low tones, and pierces your spirit with its highs. It is truly unique, and partnered with warm guitar playing and a host of pedals & effects, it really makes your ears feel like they are surrounded by an orchestra. One that envelopes you like a blanket on a cold night, bringing peace and joy."

Wilderthorn can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
