Singer-song­writer in home­com­ing gig

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

A singer-song­writer from Wye will be per­form­ing a home­com­ing gig, as part of a Euro­pean tour.

For­mer Norton Knatch­bull pupil James Kirby left his day job at Brakes in Ash­ford back in 2011 to be­come a full-time mu­si­cian.

He has been tour­ing ever since – sup­port­ing the likes of Labrinth and the Hoosiers.

James is com­ing back to the county to per­form at the Univer­sity of Kent’s Gul­benkian cafe in Can­ter­bury on Fri­day, Jan­uary 31.

He said: “I’m look­ing for­ward to play­ing in Can­ter­bury in an in­ti­mate set­ting.

“The au­di­ence can ex­pect some brand new songs that I’ve been writ­ing dur­ing my trav­els, and a guest ap­pear­ance to sing a few songs too.”

Dur­ing his cur­rent tour of Europe, James has played at venues around the UK, and in Hol­land, Lux­em­bourg and Nor­way.

Doors open for his night at the Gul­benkian cafe from 8.30pm for a 9pm start.

Tick­ets cost £7 for adults or £5 for stu­dents.
