If anyone can, Kan can

New instrumental folk group Kan (Brian Finnegan of Flook, Aidan O'Rourke from Lau, Ian Stephenson and Jim Goodwin) is heading out on their maiden tour of England beginning next week, with their debut album set for release soon.

Brian’s grounded in the Irish tradition, Aidan in the Scottish, and both are highly accomplished improvisers and celebrated composers with a brace of solo CDs each, and neither afraid to take risks and explore new sonic frontiers.

Yorkshire guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Ian Stephenson has worked with his band 422, with Kathryn Tickell and Chris Stout. He is teamed with rhythm master Jim Goodwin, drummer and percussionist with the Halle and Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. 

The boys from Kan (the Mayan god of seeds, trivia fans!) have been mates for years, meeting through their love for traditional music at sessions and then later guested on one another’s records.

Meanwhile, Ian Stephenson's solo album has just been released. More details here.
