A Devon evening of music and songs with Dan Whitehouse and Chris Cleverley 

July 31 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

£12
Across five solo albums Dan Whitehouse has gained a reputation as “a fine songwriter, a unique vocal talent and a talented multi-instrumentalist/performer” (Maverick).

Dan brings songs from his latest release, the double album Dreamland/Tomorrow which was released on Reveal Records in 2020. A contrasting pair of albums, ‘Dreamland’ was produced by Reveal Records MD Tom Rose and is a darker, more intense record created with an experimental approach. In contrast, ‘Tomorrow’ captures Dan’s live essence, raw and in the moment, and was recorded with Jon Kelly (Kate Bush, Prefab Sprout) in London and produced by Boo Hewerdine

“Nothing short of beautiful ★★★★ ” RnR Magazine

Chris Cleverley was born under a solstice moon, in an aura of honeysuckle mysticism. With a visceral lyrical style, inspired by the American greats Elliott Smith & Sufjan Stevens, his songwriting explores the place of folk music within the 21st Century emotional landscape.

Shining an honest light on diverse, arresting themes from deteriorating anxious minds to damaging gender constructs, it is no wonder Folk Radio UK have called him “One of the most vital voices of his folk generation.”

As a student of Nic Jones and John Renbourn records, his blistering yet delicate guitar technique is infused with a hazy, dreamlike essence of the 60s Folk Revival.

Genuinely important” -RnR ★★★★

“Impressive” – The Telegraph

“Haunting” – The Sunday Times
