Join us on Friday April 29 as Will Varley, supported by Sophie Jamieson Dust In The Sunlight and Brother Jonathan Music, will be filling Leigh-on-Sea’s St Clements Church to the rafters with atmospheric sounds.
Varley has just been awarded Fatea Magazine’s Artist of the Year 2021, and his Leigh Folk Arts show is off-the-back of his sixth studio album “The Whole Around My Head” released in 2021 described by Folk Radio as ‘Channelling Dylan at his most poetic, metaphoric and meditative’.
With sold-out appearances at London’s Bush Hall and Union Chapel – the ship-hull-shaped domes of the 600-year old St Clement’s church provide the perfect backdrop for this special performance.
Will has supported the likes of Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Valerie June and The Proclaimers and he’s sold-out headline shows in cities as far afield as Berlin, Zurich, Amsterdam and Vienna. High praise from the likes of Tim Minchin and Simon Nicol of Fairport Convention has helped fan the flames, as his audience continues to grow both on the road and online. His self-made music videos have clocked up millions of views on YouTube and the song ‘Seize The Night’ is fast approaching eight million streams on Spotify.
A pop-up bar will also be available courtesy of AGH Bars, who are kindly donating 45% of the bar profits back into the Festival.
This is going to be a really special evening of sublime talent performing in a beautiful historic venue.
