Some belting gigs coming up in April. First stop is St. John’s in Hull on Tuesday 4th which heralds the start of a blinding few days. Friday 7th I’ll be opening for Richard Kitson at The Greystones in Sheffield, before heading down to London on Saturday 8th to sing at a VERY special event marking the 40th anniversary of the release of The Clash‘s eponymous debut album. The songs are being performed by contemporary artists and my remit is an update of ‘Protex Blue’. This event has been lovingly put together by Philosophy Football in conjunction with the RMT, FBU, R2 Magazine and Trade Union Pale Ale and promises to be a classic.
From there it’s Leicester on Thursday 13th where I have the honour of playing the amazing Grace Petrie‘s new ‘Fire In Your Heart Folk Club’ so that will be another proper special night.
And then last, but certainly not least, is the small matter of MAY DAY FESTIVAL OF SOLIDARITY over the weekend of 29/30 in Barnsley. The event, run by myself and Tony Wright from The Hurriers, is one hell of an undertaking but we’ve put together an incredible bill of musicians, poets and speakers and now all we need is you. Tickets can be gotten from here:
and we would love to have your company.
All in all then, a cracking month. A lot of miles, but a lot of good friends and comrades en route, and I’m looking forward to every second.
