Nick Pynn's solo performance at the intimate Bom-Bane café was both dynamic and breathtaking.

This Celtic king of string instruments and renowned Devil's Fiddler - the name of his 1996 worldwide commercial release - charmed the audience with a devilish mixture of traditional folk and electro-acoustic innovation.

In a performance which featured a beautiful self-made dulcimer, electric and acoustic guitar, and violin, Pynn's delightful melange kicked off with Bad Tooth, a fiddle number dreamt during a bout of toothache, and included such Pynn originals as Steam Train and The Brightest Star.

Live-sampling all manner of sounds from the singing rim of wine glasses to the slap and shuffle of a deck of cards, Pynn transformed the warm basement of Jane Bom-Bane's into a magical music-box.
