Echo Town + John Fairhurst + DJ Richard Dead

May 27, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - May 28, 2017 @ 2:00 am

£7

 

UK South West based band Echo Town consists of free spirited brothers Ric and Rob Harrison. Recognised for their vibrant and energetic performances, contemporary freedom songs and use of multi instruments such as lap-slide guitar, djembe, didgeridoo and harmonica. The audience are often surprised to find such a full sound emanates from only two musicians.

Originally playing music of the heavy rock genre in their earlier years, the Leeds born duo moved on to develop a more harmonious and spiritual approach to music in the past five years as they creatively matured and grew into the upbeat band Echo Town we know them as today.

Echo Town have been performing to a live audience up and down the country for over three years, performing at festivals and various music venues. To date they have opened for Xavier Rudd & The United Nations, Bite the Buffalo, Land of the Giants, Wille & The Bandits and Sound of the Sirens.

“… As if John Butler’s lapsteel, Xavier Rudd’s social commentary and Jack Johnson’s catchy pop ideals have all been fused by the hands of two British songwriters.” – Richard Cadence (egigs.co.uk)

“They blast out a goodtime, uplifting and contemporary view of modern life and it is easy to hear why the duo are often an immediate hit when performing live. Highly promising.” – Keith Ames (The Musician Magazine)

 

 

 

Wigan native John Fairhurst has been honing his craft on the road combining his passions for people and music for years. The result is an awe inspiring wall of sound rooted in his northern blues background with gritty mournful deep-south attitude and a voice to carry it home.

 

 

DJ Richard Dead is an eclectic collector plays everything from 50s R&B, 60s Psych, Punk, Post Punk and Post Hardcore US Indie from the 80s/90s, to all girl groups, 60s pop, rock n’ roll and world stuff!
