BENJAMIN FRANCIS LEFTWICH will play a headline slot at CHAPTER ARTS CENTRE as part of SWN FESTIVAL 2011. We are releasing a limited number of tickets for this show only, priced £8, for people who want to go to this show only and not to any of the other shows at the festival that day. If you buy a SWN Festival Wristband for either the whole festival (£49.50) or the Saturday only (£25) then you'll get access to this show in the usual way by arriving as early or as close to doors as possible and you'll be given free priority entry, subject to capacity.
The first thing you notice is the voice. Haunting and sublimely other-worldly, it stops you in your tracks with the gentlest of touches, proving that sometimes the intoxicating simplicity of a single voice is all you need to make an impact. With Benjamin Francis Leftwich, that hypnotic, breathy voice is the reason for it all. It exposes his soul before anyone even hears the lyrics, letting the listener in to Benjamin’s most intimate world in a way no interview or video ever could. It is the essence of his being, laid bare without regret for us to share. Not just your average singer-songwriter then.
