His forays into the musical spotlight always make an impact with his edgy mix of humour and passion and intensely great songs.

Dan Stuart’s songs have been covered over the years by artists as varied as Manic Street Preachers, Richmond Fontaine, Jon Dee Graham and Vivian Girls, which he pithily describes as: “strange bedfellows for sure.”

“He was brilliant on his last visit and a big crowd loved every minute of it, and no wonder,” said Kevin Morris, of the Fallen Angels Club. “So pleased he can make it back here once more.”
