That doesn’t seem right, does it? Gaz Brookfield the self proclaimed “land pirate” who has toured (probably) every town in our fair isle, and was based in Wiltshire for a decade or so, has yet to make an appearance in our county town?!?!
Yet my fellow compadres this is the case. Gaz has never performed in Trowbridge. Never at the Village Pump, or Stallards or even the White Hart. So now on his 5th studio album, his never-ending tour finally rolls into Trowbridge at the Town Hall Arts. Bypassing the usual pup gig entry level show you have to do when visiting a new town, Gaz jumps straight to the top of the pile, in what is arguably our nicest small venue.
Previously in this room we’ve hosted Chris T-T, Mark Morriss, Professor Elemental and coming up we have Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer, Axes and Levellers front man, Mark Chadwick – who has previously personally invited Gaz to tour with him, so we’re very much becoming a member of that scene and establishing Town Hall Arts as a venue of choice for these sorts of artists and shows.
As you would expect, tickets have been strong for this gig, despite it being on the unlucky day of Friday the 13th.
You can still pick up cheap advance tickets over at WeGotTickets – We’ve seen the pre-sales and I am delighted that I know so few of them – This is going to be a totally new crowd to Sheer, to our shows and what we do, in an amazing venue and space, with amazing support in the shape of Chuck SJ Hay.
Chuck has played for us only a handful of times, but they’re an absolute talent. We haven’t seen anyone play acoustic guitar quite so aggressively since Oxygen Thief. They’ll play a lot of angry protest songs, about gender, equality and society at large.
