We Shall Overcome Weekend
I’m very proud to be playing two shows this weekend as part of the nationwide We Shall Overcome series of resistance concerts.
Up and down the nation there are literally hundreds of events and concerts in resistance to austerity, and in solidarity with those hit hardest by it.
Wherever you are in the country, visit http://weshallovercomeweekend.com/gigs/ and find out what’s going on near you.
I’ll be at Liverpool Sound And Drink on Saturday for the Liverpool Acoustic contribution to the weekend. It runs from 2pm to 6pm and I’ll be on stage at 2.30pm.
Among many great musicians, Saturday sees the virtuoso guitarist Jo Bywater, and local tunesmith Stuart Todd perform.
Then on Sunday evening I’ll be supporting the wonderful Henry Priestman at the Lantern Theatre. That event starts at 3pm and runs through til 11pm. I’ll be performing a 40 minute set at 7pm.
Also playing, on a frankly incredible bill, are award winning Americana favourites, The Good Intentions, the fabulous Lizzie Nunnery, the Grateful Fred Ukulele Band, “loved up” Les Glover, and more.
Please see my Gigs Listings for full details. Both gigs are free entry but we encourage you to bring a £3 donation or equivalent food donation (for local food banks) if you can.
Please support this weekend. There’s hundreds of events nationwide and thousands of passionate musicians on show. Let’s get together.
