After the Shuffle excitement and a little summer break from live music over August, we return with a bang on Thursday September 7th with a cracking folk-punk show featuring 2 of the hardest working musicians around.
B-Sydes (AKA Ben Sydes) is a folk-punk singer-songwriter based in Cambridge/ London. On his travels Ben has been lucky enough to share stages with Frank Turner, Gaz Brookfield, Ferocious Dog, Ben Marwood, Beans On Toast, Dave McPherson, Sam Duckworth, etc
After recording 2 EP’s, ‘Handshakes Turn To Headlocks’ and ‘Wrecked Vessels’, Ben released his debut album, ‘Constant Fictions’, in May 2015 on Aaahh!! Real Records.
|This year has been taken up with work on album number 2 interspersed with some live touring. Ben is no stranger to Swindon, having played a handful of SoP shows already at other venues.
Support Neil Morris was born and raised in the Black Country, started playing bass when he was about 12ish. Formed *Kerz* who would later become HoldUp with a few friends in school in around 1996ish. They gigged a bit and then split up in around 2000. Bored of trying to form new bands and making them tour he switched to acoustic guitar and went solo.
Since going solo he’s toured the UK 9 times and played shows with Carlos and The Jackal, The Dawn Chourus, Oxygen Thief, Ben Marwood, My Name is Ian, Jackrabbit Parole, Adam Boucher, Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun.
All in all, it should be a fantastic night of music, tempered only by Neils rather unusual sense of bumour! More details and info on the artists can be found on the event page.
