Summer By The River: Dariush Kanani

220709 Dariush Kanani Pic 1

Guitar virtuoso Dariush Kanani has been recognised as one of the finest fingerpickers of his generation. Mentored by the legendary John Renbourn (Pentangle) and selected by Stefan Grossman (The Fugs/ Kicking Mule Records) to teach at his workshops and masterclasses, Dariush has also been invited to teach at the Bert Jansch Guitar workshops and the Renbourn Workshops. He performs with many of today’s folk giants including Jacqui Mcshee’s Pentangle, Wizz Jones, Clive Carroll and Ralph McTell.

'Beautiful clean guitar tones with intricate arrangements and a magical voice are the powerful ingredients for Dariush’s music ... I’m jealous!’ (Stefan Grossman)

‘How refreshing to hear a young player who truly embraces the early British roots of acoustic guitar playing. His influences are pretty clear but he somehow captures the spirit of great players like Bert and John and makes it his own’ (Gordon Giltrap)
