Boo Sutcliffe on…

Live songwriters’ special with Boo Sutcliffe, Carol Hodge & Lizzey Ross

by | Aug 17, 2022 | Past Performances

Boo Sutcliffe will be taking the stage with two of his favourite local singers and songwriters for a special Songwriters’ Night on Saturday 17 September 2022 at Small Seeds, Huddersfield.

This triple-header is a unique opportunity to catch three of the region’s finest live performers sharing the stage and trading songs. Lizzey, Boo and Carol will be on stage together, taking it in turns to play intimate, stripped-back versions of their best known compositions, and preview some new material.

“Borrowing a theme from the excellent Songwriter Circle shows on TV, we’ve put together something a bit different from the standard gig format”, says Boo. “I’m seriously chuffed that Lizzey and Carol have agreed to join me; they’re both superb singers and have their own unique take on songwriting. It should be quite a night.”

Carol Hodge is a seven-fingered, piano-pounding singer-songwriter. Think Regina Spektor meets Billy Bragg, but with a continuous existential crisis, sandwiched between bitter irony and relentless optimism. You won’t know whether to laugh or cry, but will definitely feel something. Carol is a regular collaborator with Crass founder Steve Ignorant and Texan country rock star Ryan Hamilton, and has guested with Ginger Wildheart, Headsticks and The Membranes. She recently won Classic Rock’s Track Of The Week reader vote.

Lizzey Ross produces punchy, ethereal and elevated, folk-rock ballads in acoustic (and sometimes electronic) arrangements, effortlessly driven by her powerhouse vocals. Mindful yet restless, this music delves for meaning in the mundane and finds it within arresting melodies and enthralling dynamics.

Boo Sutcliffe is known as a captivating live performer whose music pushes at the boundaries between americana, indie and folk. Building on the success of his acclaimed 2021 debut album ‘Blink’, his new EP, ‘You’re The Same As Me’, is cementing his reputation as a creator of “beautifully crafted songs” with “lyrics of subtly and depth” (RnR Magazine)..

At the artists’ request, the advance ticket price for this special event has been kept down to just £7 (more on the door).
