On Thursday 12th October our live music session at The Tuppenny features the return of Oli Norman, who last featured on this stage at the 2017 Shuffle in an excellent but technically cursed set (who seriously breaks 2 strings on their first number? We blame the fact he had shaved his beard off…).
Oli plays a wonderful collection of atmospheric, sparse songs with emotion, feeling and intelligence. We just hope he has grown his beard back…
‘Wonderfully confident as well as humorously self-depreciating. The perfect combination’ – The Swindonian
‘Heart that pours from every word’ – The Ocelot
In support we welcome the overdue return to Swindon gigging for Luke De-Sciscio, someone Ed has been putting on for as long as he has been putting on live music.
Luke is a songwriter with a supremely gymnastic vocal style, one for who silence and space in a song are of equal importance to the notes and who likes to follow a process of total immersion in song-writing that allows him to search his soul and find the voice of each piece. The result is always spine-tingling and highly emotive.
This promises to be a very magical show indeed. Free entry as always, but artist tips are hugely appreciated.
