Live Music returns for the first time in 2018 tonight, Thursday 15th February in the fine form of Lewis Clark and local musician Nick Felix.
Lewis Clark is normally found fronting the a three-piece band called The Essentials but whether in full band mode or as a solo act his music is nothing short of beguiling. It may be made up of recognisable swathes of folk and blues but it is the injection of Balkan folk rhythms, gypsy jazz vibes, lyrical depth and a truly charismatic live performance that really makes him stand out.
Nick Felix is a well known figure in Swindon music circles and it is with great pleasure that we welcome him back to The Tuppenny to perform an acoustic set of beautifully crafted songs. With a voice that seems to bubble up from the very core of his soul and chord progressions that act as the perfect vehicle for his soaring melodies, Nick’s songs will draw you in and hold you there until he’s ready to release you.
Entry is free but artist tips are welcome. Music commences around 8.30pm. 18+ for full details consult the Facebook event page.
There are plenty more fantastic sessions coming up too, so keep an eye open here for news!
