Andi Wolf, Lauren South @ Temperance Café
Oct 5 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Andi Wolf and Lauren South are widely regarded as two of the finest singer-songwriters in Warwickshire. They have played Temperance several times to rave reviews. This is a rare opportunity to see them play extended solo sets and together as a duo for the first time.

This is sure to be a great evening in the company of the areas most influential artists in a unique double bill show. Just a fiver.

Andi has been a professional music maker for most of his life… He’s currently sharing work from his ‘Welcome to Orphan Club…’ project… Elements of Americana, alt country and contemporary folk infuse Andi’s often sonically overwhelming, powerfully potent sound… His achingly intense voice and disarmingly honest lyrics artfully celebrate the ache of the end of things… “Inspired by the tragedy of heartbreak and grief the beautifully bleak poetry of goodbye just pours out of this man…”

Lauren South is a singer and multi-instrumentalist whose self-penned and traditional songs have gained her a reputation as one of Warwickshire’s finest up and coming folk musicians. Tenor guitar, fiddle and shruti box provide backing for songs full of emotion and imagery, inspired by Lauren’s love of the night sky, nature and family life.
