Tramlines 2022 the biggest festival event in Sheffield and the highlight of the local music calendar. A local lad myself I was born and raised in Hillsborough and spent a lot of my youth in Hillsborough Park so it holds a special place in my heart. The closest we ever got to this size event …

Siobhan Miller arrived at the Greystones at the end of a warm spring weekend in Sheffield as part of her Anglo/Scottish tour; see LIVE | Siobhan Miller.  What could be better on a Sunday evening than a couple of locally produced cold beers and some great imported Live music!  The packed ‘BacKroom’ needed no warming up …

This was the second date on (LIVE – Red Snapper (redsnapperofficial.com)) new UK tour; a tour they’ve not attempted for far too long. Though I did try and see them in 2021 this was impacted by the pandemic; so I couldn’t wait for this one. On the eve of the release of their new material, …

A trip to Sheffield O2 Academy last Friday, I wasn’t sure what to expect as I hadn’t seen Kenny perform for a long time, suffice to say that I was not disappointed. Up first was Acantha Lang, hailing from London but originally from stateside New Orleans, Acantha performed a semi-acoustic set of soulful originals. With …

Tuesday night and a trip to the iconic Leadmill for what promised to be a fantastic evening. First up was El Ray hailing from Manchester but very obviously originally from Ireland (can’t fake that accent!), performing a solo acoustic set of his latest tracks. El Ray has a distinctive voice and judging by the crowd …

A trip to the Corporation in Sheffield on Friday to see Twister for the second date of their much anticipated UK tour. I first discovered Twister last year when I attended Winter Rocks Festival, they hugely impressed me, so much so that I sought out their music and have followed the band’s progress over the …

I seem to find myself getting down to South Yorkshire for gigs less and less these days, they all seem to be further north or across the Pennines for some reason, but this one was not to be missed. The mighty Polish Death Metal stalwarts, Decapitated, are celebrating 25 years in existence and this planned …

AT 53, I’ve seen a lot of gigs, some really great ones, and this was the best I’ve ever seen, relegating the previous best, also Self Esteem at Heaven last November, into second place. Self Esteem are more than a band now – they are a movement. Every gig is bigger, every audience is more …

Another great night at Sheffield University’s Foundry; witnessing first: Aziza + Finguz, a talented local three-piece, then Kokoroko the headline act up from London.   Warming up the Friday night crowd; Aziza + Finguz played their latest and greatest material, which went down well; a mix of hip/trip-hop with some electronic influence, backed by keyboard, double …

A trip to Sheffield City Hall this week to see 2012 X Factor winner James Arthur. James seems to have done what few former singing competition winners have managed and that is to last the test of time and more importantly remain credible. Based on tonight’s performance I can understand why as he has an …
