Independent Venue Week 2020 Tour

Having played Derry for the first time in September supporting Brand New Friend, we're beyond excited to be bringing back Southampton songwriter Seán McGowan for a headline show in Bennigans as part of this year's Independent Venue Week!

Poet, songwriter and dedicated touring artist, to many - Sean McGowan - is already a familiar face. Breaking out of the Southampton scene and snapped up by Xtra Mile Recordings, Sean has since toured all over the world with friends and Xtra Mile family Skinny Lister, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. and Will Varley, as well as fellow working-class heroes Billy Bragg and The Levellers. Along the way, Sean has played crowd-winning sets to the folk of major festivals the likes of Glastonbury, 2000 Trees, Camden Rocks, Truck and beyond, whilst also playing a huge main stage at the legendary Camden Roundhouse as one of the main supports at Frank Turner’s Lost Evenings II.

Channelling smart wordplay through a clash of tunes both melancholic and riotous, Sean released his acclaimed debut album 'Son of the Smith’ in 2018 and now follows it in 2019 with his latest release: ‘Curate Calm, Create Chaos’.

‘Curate Calm, Create Chaos’ is subdued and stripped-back, raw and reflective, and together illuminate Sean’s songwriting talents going from strength to strength. Sean will be playing 4 very special shows as part of Independent Venue Week in early 2020 in Bishops Stortford, Bournemouth, Derry and Reading.
