Andy Bennett - Singer-Songwriter (ex-Ocean Colour Scene)

As a cure for the Boxing Day blues, we have ex-Ocean Colour Scene’s Andy Bennett performing two sets of his own material and classics from his extensive back catalogue on Thursday 26th December.

In addition to his solo work, Andy has been a member of Sargent, The Elements and Ocean Colour Scene of whom he was a member for over 10 years and appearing on eight studio albums. One song Bennett co-wrote “Old Pair of Jeans” received particular critical acclaim, with one critic writing “It just gets better with every song a winner. The jaunty ‘Old Pair of Jeans’ is rollicking fun”.

Bennett left Ocean Colour Scene in 2015 to begin a solo career putting out his debut solo single “Hole in the Road” straight off the bat and releasing the follow up single “Drift away” in May 2016. Both singles were followed by Bennett’s debut album “thinking, drinking, singing”. Released in November 2016 the album included old classics like “Old Pair of Jeans” and a plethora of songs Bennett had worked on over the years with his latest single, Do It All for Love, being released in November 2019.

And there’s more … on the afternoon we’re also, in conjunction with the aforementioned Bertie, running Joe Joe Jims Musical Exchanges from 2pm: bring along any equipment, instruments and accessories you wish to trade and see what deals can be struck.

Their extended version of Freebird (yes, it is possible to extend the guitar solo!) formed a show stopping finale to their last gig and we’re glad they could fit us into their hectic schedule.
