3 part harmony singing group The Bobbysocks curate an evening of beautiful harmonies and lush melodies upstairs at the Royal Oak in Chorlton. The Bobbysocks have performed at Manchester International Festival, Main Stage at Manchester Pride, Kendal Calling, Vintage by the Sea, The Royal Exchange, Dig the City and Just So Festival, and always bring the swing to the party! Some of you may have seen them busking around Chorlton before! They appear at Chorlton Arts Festival with their full band and are delighted to be part of the festival. This gig will also be the launch of their first EP ‘DIY’ which is a delightful collection of folky alt-country original songs.
The Bobbysocks will be joined by their good friends – the wonderful Voices Beyond Gospel Collective. Voices Beyond write the most inspiring and uplifting original gospel music as well as their take on classic soul covers, and have performed all over the UK. They guarantee to put a smile on your face!
Also joining The Bobbysocks are Rachael Gladwin and the Red Socks, bringing upbeat, folky, original songs to the table. Their warm melodies are accompanied by jazzy harp, rich cello and bouncing cajon.
