From Nashville, Tennessee - Otis Gibbs

Sunday 19 October 2014 7.30pm

Subject to contract exchange

Otis Gibbs, who hails from Wanamaker, Indiana, currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

His visits to the UK are not as frequent as we would like, but he was recently persuaded by Billy Bragg to come here and tour with him.

He is a writer of songs, teller of tales, populist agitator, and social dissident, and has often been compared to Woody Guthrie, Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen and other American blue collar songwriters.

He has quite a story to tell, for he has travelled far and wide, wandered with nomadic shepherds in Romania, bedded down with hobos, was a fifth grade yo-yo champion and once wrestled a bear (and lost).

Well worth coming out on a Sunday night for! Here Otis sings "Joe Hill's Ashes"
