FOUR singer-songwriters acclaimed by national radio presenters are bringing a special tour to The Pump folk club in Trowbridge later this month.

Annie Dressner, Lucy Grubb, Dan Wilde & Luke James Williams are hitting the road this month to perform at six music venues across the country as part of their songwriters’ circle.

They will all be performing at The Pump folk club behind The Lamb public house in Trowbridge on Saturday, March 18, from 7.30pm.

Bound by a shared love of classic songwriting, these four acclaimed singer-songwriters present an evening of song, performed both individually and in collaboration.

Between them, they have amassed appearances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals, including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk, Green Man and Black Deer.

The awesome foursome have also garnered rave reviews from the likes of Folk Radio, Maverick and Paste Magazine and received airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6 Music.

Also coming up on Sunday, April 16 is the crazy maverick, John Otway, and his partner in madness, “Wild” Willy Barrett.

The Pump’s manager, Kieran Moore, said: “After an incredibly well received sold out Village Pump gig in Trowbridge last year, when John was performing solo, John somewhat pleaded with us to allow him to bring "Wild" Willy Barrett back with him next time.

“We couldn’t rightly believe that John hadn’t previously played The Pump, nevertheless who are we to stand in the way of a giant and deny Willy the chance to also break his Trowbridge duck?

“So without further ado, The Pump is proud to announce that the ‘Half a century - 50 Years of Otway & Barrett’ tour will land in Trowbridge on Sunday, April 16.”

Forthcoming gigs also include ‘sold out’ shows from David Ford on Friday, March 10, and local teen band Nothing Rhymes With Orange on Friday, March 31.

There are also a few tickets left for gigs by Tom Jenkins on Saturday, April 22, and Wiltshire band Carsick, who have just signed a record deal, an agency deal and been on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music, on Saturday, April 29.
