Award-winning local singer-songwriter Duncan Batey (“Perfectly crafted songs and amazing delivery” – The Basis) takes a break from recording his debut album ‘Little Black Classics’ to play a Fringe gig at the Hawthorns. Accompanied by Dan Shaw (Mossflower) on upright bass, and Gerry Barnett (Ushti Baba) on cello, he’ll be previewing tracks from the new album, as well as playing some old favourites from his ‘Blindsided’ EP (“A strong, slow-burning collection” – Neon Filler).
Sharing the bill will be his old schoolchum Tim Keegan (Departure Lounge, Robyn Hitchcock). Now based in Worthing, this will be Tim’s first gig in Glastonbury. He’ll be playing songs from his solo albums ‘Foreign Domestic’ (“The emphasis here is on quality songwriting – think vintage Lloyd Cole or The Go-Betweens in their quieter moments”, Q Magazine; “Like a breath of cool, summer-scented air into an overheated room” – The Word). and ‘The Long Game’ (“The moving assessment of too many years of silence. One of the UK’s most exquisite songwriters” – Magic Revue Pop Moderne; “A gem – more than recommended” – POPnews) as well as new material.
