LIVE MUSIC – “Ben Smith & Jimmy Brewer”
When Joan Armatrading launched her ‘local talent’ search for acts to support her on tour in 2012, she was looking for original artists from all over the UK to showcase their work. Ben Smith and Jimmy Brewer were two of the acts chosen, and in 2015 she called them back to support her again on her first ever solo tour. They met each other at an industry showcase that was organised by Joan, and started writing together at the suggestion of some publishers they met there.
They originally intended to just write together, but after realising that they had a natural affinity for each other’s styles they soon decided to start playing live too, and their first gig as a duo was supporting Joan in November 2015 in front of a thousand people. They have played many gigs since then, and recently they showcased at The Americana Music Association UK 2017 conference and awards in London. Their voices complement each other in a way that is redolent of some of the greatest musical partnerships, their playing styles intertwine beautifully and the songs they write combine traditional storytelling with a modern twist that will leave you humming them for days.
Performing upstairs in The Rhee Gallery, this intimate performance is not to be missed. Tickets are available HERE.

So, unpickle your brains and get the cogs whirring again, and get your good selves down to December’s Six Rounds with Tom Canning. There will be a few New Year themed questions no doubt…
