Live Music Session # 18 – Grant Sharkey

We are stoked to be able to bring back the irascible Grant Sharkey back to The Tuppenny. Grant is a double bass wielding, musical satirist dealing in insightful social commentary, leftfield musical creations, challenging political messages and often just plain silly songs.

This show comes as part of the cycle for album Trollbadour, the tenth record  and quarter way point in Grant’s ongoing challenge to record 40 albums over 20 years. Grant is known for writing songs with powerful political and social themes and great humour and this album is no  exception. Live, the set is interspersed  with plenty of witty banter and passionate discourse about current affairs, so the ongoing debacle of Trump, Brexit and general crapness of UK politics bodes well….

Grant is with us on Thursday 17th December from approx 8.30pm. Entry is free but we do ask you to donate and support the artists. More info here: Grant Sharkey Event Page

Live Music Session #9 – Grant Sharkey

We are very pleased to be able to host a gig from Grant Sharkey, a double bass wielding, musical satirist dealing in insightful social commentary, leftfield musical creations, challenging political messages and often just plain silly songs.

Grant is known for writing songs with powerful political and social themes and great humour, and interspersing his sets of these songs with a plenty of witty banter and passionate discourse about current affairs, so this show is well timed with the rise of The Trump and Brexit all recent memories, and a snap general election on the horizon. Plenty of fuel for his ire there….

This show comes as part of the cycle for album Radical You, the ninth record in Grant’s ongoing challenge to record 40 albums over 20 years. This record promises to tackle the current political system and the swing towards fascism and is a call to join The Rational Front and present a new, Radical You.

Grant is with us on Wednesday 17th May from approx 8.30pm. Entry is free but we do ask you to donate and support the artists. More info here: Grant Sharkey Event Page
