Known for his soulful singing and inimitable playing of guitar and banjo, Lotus’ remarkable live performances always include something unusual. If it is jaw-harp, an old forgotten chant or a bass harmonica on a chest-rack, Wight will always find a unique way to present the work that he clearly loves so much. Wight will always surprise his audience with his ability to move through the American musical cannon with remarkable originality in his delivery and instrumentation.
He is a singer of pre-war blues and banjo songs. Between these seemingly distant cousins, Lotus Wight travels these analogous roads and delivers his music in a seamless and well-curated mix.
Lotus is also a member of the international touring act Sheesham, Lotus and Son and has produced recordings for children’s television, animation projects, and JUNO award winner Jenny Whiteley.
