If your idea of a heaven lies at the mercy of a fist-pumping, heart-on-sleeve singer-songwriter armed with an acoustic guitar, a stack of anthems and a heart full of raw emotion, then I can confidently guarantee that all your Christmases will come at once on Sunday 21st November, as Scottish solo artists Billy Liar and Withered Hand are co-headlining two shows within the region on that very day!

The proceedings will kick off with an afternoon show at Middlesbrough’s Westgarth Social Club before proceeding north for an evening engagement at Sunderland’s The Ship Isis. These two shows will find the prolific Billy Liar finally able to air songs from his debut album Some Legacy, which followed a lengthy string of EPs and a solid decade of touring the globe with his punk-indebted brand of troubadour glory. Joining Liar is lo-fi stalwart Withered Hand, the alias of Dan Willson (whose songwriting has bagged him plaudits from publications such as NME and MOJO and artists as esteemed as King Creosote) who will be previewing material from the long-awaited follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed LP New Gods.
