FOLLOWING the release of his new single this month, Essex based folk artist Kevin Pearce is now on a promotional tour of the UK.

He will be playing at the Convent in Woodchester on Saturday at 8pm.

Growing up surrounded by the classics of his dad’s record collection; The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Kevin has always lost himself in music.

Hearing Tim Buckley’s Dream Letter: Live In London 1968 album was a moment of profound awakening.

From then on music was all that Kevin wanted to do and what he knew he had to do.

His new single Jump was released on October 21, ahead of a new album in early 2017.
