Two of the UK’s finest songwriters join forces for a special concert filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft.

The Wandering Hearts + Elles Bailey + Cattle & Cane + The Adelaides + Foreign Affairs
Saturday August 24th 2019 – 6pm // The Civic Hall, Cottingham

The Wandering Hearts came together almost in defiance of the current zeitgest of rhinestone hats and Fender guitar UK country-rock that has jumped onto the proverbial bandwagon in the last two years. Beautiful harmony laden Alt-Country infused Folk-Americana.

The stellar supporting cast is led by Bristol-based Elles Bailey, who has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock, with a contemporary edge.

John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett
Sunday August 25th 2019 – 7.30pm // The Back Room, Cottingham

This magnetic bond still holds after more than 40 years of attempted escapes and still loved for their total in-yer-face originality, the contrast between the dead pan humour of Barrett and mad onstage antics of Otway are hilarious to watch. Be prepared for everything from bare-chested theremin playing to wah wah wheelie bin…

Intimate all seated show, limited to 100 tickets. TWO SETS, NO SUPPORT.
