This event has been and gone.
It has been 15 years since Singer/songwriter Stew Simpson (Frontman for Hadrian's Union) recorded his first solo album (The Best of ... Yet To Come). Stew's performance will be celebrating the release of his brand new album 'Milk Man Son'.
Without the framework of Hadrian's Union, Stew has allowed himself to explore different sides of his journey into folk music using his roots in traditional mining songs from the North East of England, from his previous show Hyem through to such Folk and Rock cross over songs by Led Belly/Nirvana, (Where did you sleep last night) and to his more outrageous surrealist poetry.
Stew Simpson is mostly known as the frontman and lead singer for contempory folk duo Hadrian's Union. He has been performing as a singer and songwriter for over 20 years and is signed to Fellside Records as a part of Hadrian's Union. Stew has played all over the UK at folk festivals, Clubs and on Radio Stations. Stew says: "I wasn't brought up with folk music, folk music found me and it made me fall in love with my roots in a way that may never have happened if i'd stayed in Newcastle. I'm proud to call myself a folk singer and i've really enjoyed the journey in discovering that to be the best person I can be, is by being honest and open with my audience."
