Devizes is getting good at this – Appealing to touring acts, who are willing to travel vast distances to play our quaint little town. After last weeks short-notice, unexpected addition of Mark McCabe (It’s OK, we were more than happy to have him back, after his excellent previous performance on Oxygen Thief’s 2012 tour) we have the pleasure of inviting fellow Scot DAVE HUGHES & THE RENEGADE FOLK PUNK BAND to town.
In fact it was Sheer’s offer that prompted Dave to book a tour around our date, so we’re super proud to have given this tour a life of it’s own – and as usual it takes in some great cities, and we are once again the smallest town on tour.
“With clear shades of The Pogues, The La’s and Springsteen, they are clearly doing it right” say Kerrang! so who are we to argue? Dave will be bringing a band with him, perhaps not a full band but a typical Lamb style stripped back band we’ve seen from the likes of Mick O’ Toole and Crazy Arm recently.
This is folk music firmly rooted in punk, often with a story to tell. A little bit of thought-provoking social commentary to it’s lyrics shows Dave to be an intelligent and articulate song writer.
Support for the night comes from BAND OF THE UNDERHAND, featuring Pete Assirati and Dave Earl in it’s ranks and performing their first show in Devizes, these lot are the perfect foil for the headliners.
Opening the night will be recent USA bound singer/songwriter, LUKE DE-SCISCIO. Luke was lucky enough to be spotted performing and then hand picked to perform at a Jeff Buckley celebratory event in NYC! Luke was flying the flag for local music, since he’s only from Bath, with a brief tour and playing this now yearly event to mourn the passing of Jeff. Luke is an ethereal type singer songwriter; delicate whispers over fragile guitars – a genuine experience!
