Charity Show For Shelter With Billy Bragg

Pleased to announce that I’ll be playing a special fundraising show alongside Billy Bragg for the housing and homelessness charity Shelter on 18th December.

With the onset of winter and the fact that, this Christmas there will be 80,000 children in Britain without a proper home, the essential work they do is even more crucial and Billy and I hope you’ll support us in this.

Shelter is a charity close to my heart, I donated all proceeds of the FTHC flag to help the cause, so this show means a lot to me.

The double headline show will take place at Wilton’s Music Hall in Shadwell, London.

There’s only a limited amount of tickets and we want to make it fair to everyone wanting to get in. A link will be posted to a musicglue page at 4pm on Monday 18th November that will allow you to register your interest in buying a ticket.

Names will then be drawn randomly from the list and those who have scored a ticket will be informed via direct email on Tuesday 26th November.

Stay tuned for the link and more details on next Monday!

Back To The Continent

It seems like we only just finished a European tour, but it was such a good time that we thought we’d get another one up and running. And I didn’t want my European friends to think I was ignoring them, with the UK Arena run and all that. Check out the shows below.

It’s great to be hitting some old favourites, Germany and Holland and so on, but it’s even more exciting to be hitting some places that are either totally new to us, or less visited – Scandinavia, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and so on.

We also have a great support bill for the run which we will announced soon, but for now, here are the dates, with ticket links for you.

Wed 19 – Melkweg, Amsterdam, Holland
Thu 20 – Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany
Fri 21 – Max, Kiel, Germany
Sun 23 – John Dee, Oslo, Norway
Mon 24 – Helsinki, Nosturi, Finland
Wed 26 – Debaser Medis,Stockholm, Sweden
Thu 27 – Amager Bio, Denmark, Copenhagen

‘Oh Brother’ Fan Video

If you’ve heard my song ‘Oh Brother’ and seen the video for it featuring my good buddy Ben Dawson, you’ll know it’s a bit of a sentimental old sop-fest. I’m hoping it tugged at your heartstrings and didn’t make you feel nauseous.

Having met a lot of you folks whilst on the road, I know how solid your connections are, and I want to celebrate that with a fan video showing the frolics you and your mates get up to.

It’s pretty easy, all you need to do is get your mate, or mates, and film yourself having a bit of a laugh. Post the end result to Instagram with the hashtag #FTHCohbrother and it share to Twitter so it can be tracked a little more easily.

Some of the best ones will be compiled in a new promo for ‘Oh Brother’ which will be forever cemented on my YouTube channel.

Looking forward to seeing some of your videos!

UK Tour Support Announced

It is with great pleasure that I can finally announce the supports for the massive UK tour coming up next February. It’s miles and away the biggest run of shows that the Sleeping Souls and I have ever undertaken, so it’s nice to know that we will be in the company of old friends – not only in the crowd but also on the stage.

Flogging Molly took us on our first ever US full-band tour back in 2010 and we’ve been compadres ever since; they’re also one of my favourite live acts and an all-round killer band. In the unlikely event of you not knowing their stuff, I’d heartily recommend checking them out, brushing up on the tunes and getting ready to dance.

Beans On Toast, my old buddy Jay, is probably a familiar face to many of you. Jay was one of the people who persuaded me to play acoustic guitar at Nambucca back in 2005, and we’ve shared many miles of the road together since in different parts of the world. It just wouldn’t be right to head out on a tour like this without having him around to kick the night off in style.

Charleston and Columbia Show Postponement

Hey everyone. It’s with a fair amount of sadness and irritation that I have to announce that the upcoming shows in Charleston and Columbia, SC, in November, are being postponed. I have to fly back to England for a day or two to sort out a personal issue. It’s something I really have to do, despite the fact that it’s letting people down. My apologies to everyone who was planning on coming to the shows, I love playing the Carolinas and I’m really pissed off about missing the gigs. We will do our level best to get them back in the calendar as soon as possible.
