Aidan Andrew Dun - Intro Notes - Back to Index



I first came across Aidan Portrait by Ira Cohen on fools day 1997 at Union Chapel where he did a gig with David Oladunni on percussion and a guy called Quiller on keyboards. Aidan himself was on acoustic guitar and vocals and I was intrigued by what I heard. Being a serious Reggae fan I loved the skanking guitar and dub/roots feel. Since then I have seen Aidan perform at least half a dozen times, but always solo. He very rarely covers other people's material (I seem to recall a version of "Summertime") but has plenty of his own songs and poems to work with. Ian Gregory 2010
