Andy Comley Live at West Grimstead Village Hall
Andy Comley goes back to his roots.
Singer-songwriter Andy Comley has moved out of the usual venues and headed back to his roots, by embarking on a tour of rural halls.
Having played on three continents and supported some of the UK’s top singer-songwriters such as Boo Hewerdine (Eddie Reader), Emily Barker, and Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran), Andy explained why he has now set his sights closer to home.
“I believe in community, and arts provision for all, and I understand that the local hall can be an important place for people to meet and create social ties,” said the 47 year old, who grew up in the sleepy Hampshire village of Owslebury.
However he also has artistic reasons for moving out of the town.
“I want an intimate atmosphere for my music, where there’s no distraction, and the audience can focus and be transported musically, and I’ve found it in small rural halls”
The gigs are sit down-lights out-spotlight on affairs, and Andy says that this format makes for an immersive evening for the audience and performer alike. “People have been responding really well and we’ve had some really great feedback.”
Often likened to Neil Young, Andy has been called passionate and a poet, and of his last album, Verity Sharpe (Radio 3’s Late Junction) said “I love it”.
Andy will be playing with double bassist Dave Bulbeck at West Grimstead Village Hall, nr. Salisbury on Saturday 6th May 2017.
Don’t miss this chance to see an emotive singer/songwriter in an intimate venue.
