HD Concerts makes its debut in The Ferret with two shows this week.
Southern will headline a show on Thursday 15th before Roo Panes rounds off everyone’s weekend on Sunday 18th.
HD Concerts is the promotions company owned by 53 Degrees Events Manager Joff Hall. All his previous Preston shows have been at 53 Degrees, though he also promotes in York, Newcastle and Liverpool.
Southern are a sublime combination of blues, acoustic and rock music. The result sounds a little bit like The Subways on one of their happier days. They will be supported by Skinny Wrist Gumbo, Bill Orrick and Jess Roberts.
Roo Panes is one of the best young acoustic talents in the country right now. Inspired by both classical music and more contemporary influences like Johnny Flynn, he’ll be supported by Tom Metcalfe and Jess Harwood.
Joff Hall said: “It’s great to be working with one of Preston’s most loved venues bringing some grassroots talent to the forefront.
“The Ferret plays a great role in the local scene so it’s nice to be able to contribute towards that and help keep Preston on the map with some emerging talent.”
Tickets for Southern are £4 (£5 on the door) / Tickets for Roo Panes are £5 (same price on the door).
