Christmas Special 2019 Lineup

November 25, 2019

 
 

The lineup has been announced for the 2019 Christmas Special, and it's a good'un!

It's that time of year where I announce the special guests joining me at this year's Christmas party, held once again at The Red Shed in Wakefield on 14th December. I always try and find folk I've worked with or performed with over the year, and this year I am deliriously happy to bring along:

SPROOSE MOOSE, which is the moniker of singer-songwriter Jamie Hayward. Born in Luton & living in Brid, Sproose Moose mixes elements of folk, punk & indie rock in a rambunctious fashion. Debut single 'One More Drink' out now on all major streaming platforms, and his Christmas song “‘Tis the Season (to be Trollied)” - an alternative ode to the festive period - is out on December 12th. I've been invading his Open Mic sessions in Bridlington since Summer and I'm really pleased he's coming over to join us.

ALICE NICHOLLS, genderflux, bisexual woman-person with a lot of instruments, even more sarcasm and a dark sense of humour (and a few happy songs, cause it's Christmas and that.) With a ditty prepared for almost every topical issue facing the modern world, Alice performs poetical, political, personal and profound songs that tell of a life alternatively and joyously lived. Alice's EP of protest songs, KIND QUIET RIOTS, is available now at www.alicenichollsmusic.bandcamp.com/album/kind-quiet-riots - Alice has been on the bill with me at Sheffield's Diversity Fest, and is always a smashing listen.

ALEX ASHER, an 18 year old performance poet from West Yorkshire who I shared a bill with in aid of Trans Pride Leeds a few months ago. Performing at venues all across Yorkshire, he talks about topical issues such as education and politics as well as more personal subjects on mental health and being transgender. Check out his YouTube channel for more of his work: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNCfBFKRTpROMa8xadeNx1A/

GENEVIÉVE L WALSH is the only performer (apart from me) who has been at every Christmas show, and I have toured with extensively. A foul-mouthed spoken-word queer feminist Goth, they're fresh off a tour of their own in-development one-woman show A Place In The Shade, a show about Alternative life in the age of Alternative Facts. It wouldn't be Christmas without Walshkins!

Alongside these fantastic performers I'll also be performing a full electric set of old songs, new songs, tracks from the upcoming album Dirty Blonde and there'll be some surprises too!

Although tickets are free, they must be pre-booked and they've all sold out. However we do usually get some back closer to the day and we are operating a waiting list for returns. Click on the button below to sign up to be in with a chance for them.
