This will be a very special show and a rare opportunity to see one of Britain’s great vocalists and songwriters perform in the relatively intimate setting of our Festival Marquee.
After 25 years and counting as the singer in Elbow, Guy Garvey is now making a success of a solo career.
Guy will be performing from his highly acclaimed solo album Courting The Squall and will be accompanied by musicians from the album, including Pete Jobson of I Am Kloot on guitar, Nathan Sudders of The Whip on bass and Alex Reeves on drums. Elbow’s brass section complete the live line-up.
Live shows earlier this year garnered huge praise and saw the big-hearted baritone move from quintessentially Elbow-like sounds, through R&B and blues to inventive, vivid rhythms inspired by Fela Kuti and Afrobeat.
