Bank Street Arts Sheffield

I am thrilled to be working with Jim Ghedi during his residency at Bank St Arts

Its safe to say we have plans…

Jim Ghedi is an experimental singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and poet based in Sheffield. Wrote and recorded 2 Ep’s ‘Archipelago’ & ‘Of Abyssinia’ and an unreleased double album titled ‘Satori’ which showcases his unique style and brings together more than twenty Sheffield musicians including members of Blood Sport, Screaming Maldini, The Purgatory Players and Oxo Foxo.

An original style, described as ‘afro folk jazz’, has developed through his exploration of African and Eastern music, classical symphonies, avant-garde folk & jazz and a passion for extreme creative self expression. A key member in two DIY art collectives within Sheffield ‘Audacious Art Experiment’ & ‘Little Mesters record confederacy’
For his residency at Bank Street Arts, Jim will work on a number of projects
  • Live art performance – what can be created when artists connect for one thing? – exploring the connection of different creative Art-forms through a wide range of performances. Incorporating live music, art, poetry & dance.
  • Shared group workshops – Focusing on individual creativity and the values of self expression within a supportive group, includes group discussions & studies on various topics & subjects, a presentation of individual work towards the group, along with Jim himself there will be a number of other fellow passionate artists invited to get involved.
  • ‘Keith How’ is a painter who has been working alongside Jim for over the past year, these two also plan to team up once again for unique events and collaborations with various artists.
