Wes Finch and The Rude Mechanicals

Friday, 10th May 2019 : 7pm


Southwell Library present Wes Finch and The Rude Mechanicals on Friday 10th May at 7pm. In this delightful gem of a concert, The Rude Mechanicals led by the exceptional song-smith Wes Finch, and galvanised by their love of literature, draw on the words of Shakespeare, WB Yeats, William Blake, Philip Larkin, John Masefield and more for their witty erudite, and achingly lively songs. Invigorating guitar and exceptional vocals are accompanied by skillful and vivacious double bass and the subtly interweaving string lines of violin and viola, all is accentuated by percussion and drums. With a blast of originality and fantastic energy, they combine bittersweet acoustic ballads, subtle folk-classical music, jazz, chanson and enchanting poetry recitation into a live show of infectious goodwill and sense of occasion. Tickets are available from the library £10/concessions £9, contact 01363 812148 for further details.
