Local promoters Fuelled By Cider are at it again, bringing acclaimed folk-punk troubadour Gaz Brookfield back to Taunton at the Creative Innovation Centre CIC on Saturday 14 April.
This will be Brookfield’s third visit to the county town in three years as part of UK tours, a testament to his huge popularity in the West Country. Both previous gigs sold out in advance and a similar response is expected this time around.
Since winning Acoustic magazine’s 2010 Singer Songwriter of the year, Gaz has spent his time on the road, touring the UK and Europe.
He remains the only unsigned solo artist to sell out The Fleece, Bristol. A feat he as now achieved 5 times. The last three times selling out over 6 months in advance.
Often playing as many as 200 gigs a year, Gaz’s relentless and never-ending tour schedule takes him to every corner of the country and beyond. The last few years have seen Brookfield play at over 100 UK festivals, including Glastonbury, Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory, and many more, firmly cementing him as a festival favourite for the future.
Rising solo act Joe McCorriston is Gaz’s chosen support for the night, bringing with him a reputation for a similarly tireless work rate and upbeat energetic live show. Highly-rated local duo Stevie & The Masquerades will be kicking off the night in style and making this a line-up of impressive quality.
This will be Fuelled By Cider’s first collaboration with CICCIC and promoter Mike Lacey described it as “an exciting opportunity to bring two independent, creative forces together to create a buzz in the local live music scene.”
