APPEARING ON Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Alx Green + support Campfire Social & Connah Evans [+]

Free Entry

It’s only right that such a talented musician and Telford’s regular should headline a night before he heads off on his big adventure.

Alx Green

Alx Green 1

“Though Alx has been playing in bands for many years, it was only relatively recently he started to indulge his love for acoustic based music, and we’re very glad he did. The 24 year old self-taught musician grew up heavily influenced by his musical parents and began playing guitar at a very young age.

His latest EP ‘It won’t last’ was recently released just before a week long tour of London playing a different venue every night to share his music with new audiences, the final night being at the Natural History Museum!

Marrying skilful songwriting with delicate arrangement and performance, but with a vocal capable of travelling from soft and intimate, to huge soaring dynamics, his music is evocative of classic acoustic songwriting, but with a new, fresh voice”

Campfire Social

A great band.

Connah Evans

From learning to play piano at an early age Connah progressed to  being taught the cornet, trombone, and the drums. But to the relief of his neighbours, the lure of a steady beat and some fancy drum sticks that lit up in the gloom of his garage, was not enough to keep him from his love of singing.

At the age of four Connah got his first guitar that he used every day! After many years of tampering with that Connah began to write songs after a teacher in his primary school saw his talent and encouraged him to write his own songs by giving him a note pad. Since then Connah has never looked back!

Turning down a place at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts for which he was chosen from out of hundreds of drummers, Connah has decided to carve out a career for himself singing the self-penned heartfelt ballads and his upbeat material that are beginning to attract attention from Festivals, Radio stations and at a variety of other venues.

Connah released his first single at the beginning of 2014 titled ‘In the City’ which soon attracted the attention of radio stations. It then helped Connah become BBC Radio Wales Artist of the week where his debut single ‘In the City was played three times a day for a week. After this Connah received more and more invites from venues all over the UK asking him to go and play.
