Gerard and the Watchmen
Wednesday 26 February
Dave Gerard Music, with his backing band The Watchmen, are rising stars of the folk scene, garnering praise from Bob Harris and Mary Ann Hobbs. Having played for Communion and at Secret Garden Party, Gerard & The Watchmen will be returning to Manchester for the first time this year, gracing Kraak with their rich presence.
Supporting them will be:
Devil In My Bones – A project by Leonard Hammersley, Luke Thorpe and Mike ‘Sword In Air’ Boyd. Their new sound is a collection of heavy grooves and stirring vocal harmonies.
Stephen Hudson & The Fiat Pandas – A folk foursome delivering some nice little songs about everyday happenings with a Belle & Sebastian nuance.
Guy Connor – Delivering sweep melodies, pop hooks and heavy grooves, Guy will be accompanied by Paul Hesketh on electric guitar & bass.
Afternoon Kingdom – An emerging local singer-songwriter with a passion for acoustic melodies and soft vocal tones.
