“The Beatles meets Simon & Garfunkel meets Scissor Sisters meets Bon Iver meets Mumford & Sons meets Serious Child meets Andy Ruddy”
Two very different songwriters find fertile ground in the gap between their ages and musical backgrounds. Serious Child – West Sussex roots musician Alan Young – and contemporary Bradford singer songwriter Andy Ruddyexplore what brings people together in modern acoustic music.
For this special show to celebrate the launch of their album Talk About The Weather, they will also be joined by a special guest (to be announced).
Serious Child is songwriter and roots musician Alan Young from West Sussex. He draws from a wide range of acoustic musical influences from folk to pop to bossanova to explore the world around us with a poet’s ear for emotion and a comedian’s eye for everyday detail.
