Neil McSweeney in Concert
Davenham Theatre
Saturday 23rd September 2017
This is an old event, please click here to find more events

Neil McSweeney (born Irvine, Scotland) is a songwriter and musician based in Sheffield, England. His acoustic guitar playing style combines folk, blues and country influences but it is his voice and his direct and personal lyrics for which he is most recognised.

McSweeney’s debut album, Remember To Smile was released in 2006 by Sheffield independent label, LM Music. Tracks from the album attracted national radio play from BBC Radio 2 and the digital station BBC Radio 6 Music.

Shoreline emerged in 2009. This was a self-released album and attracted positive reviews in the national press as well as the attention of fellow Sheffield musician, Richard Hawley. Following support sets at The Crucible in Sheffield and the Royal Festival Hall, McSweeney accompanied Hawley as main support on the European leg of his Truelove’s Gutter tour.

During 2011 and 2012, McSweeney developed friendships with musicians from the English folk and roots scene. This developed into collaborations which formed the basis for an EP (The Seventeen EP) and a third full-length album (Cargo) both released in 2013. The album features contributions from Lucy Farrell, Sam Sweeney, Brooks Williams, Matt Boulter, Vera Van Heeringen, Jock Tyldesley, Andy Seward and others.

In Autumn 2013 McSweeney supported English folk group Bellowhead on their UK tour. He was accompanied by Vera van Heeringen and Sweeney. Van Heeringen and McSweeney subsequently collaborated on an EP (released Oct 2015).

Other projects include GluePot (with Farrell and Boulter), who released an EP (Lulu the Bear and other Stories) in 2015, and Holler with Fay Hield and Jon Boden.

Spring 2017 saw the release of his latest album A Coat Worth Wearing [see Review below] supported by a number of tour dates, featuring some of his collaborators from the 2013 Cargo album, including an opening slot for Richard Hawley at The Devils Arse in Castleton.
