Manchester singer-songwriter, poet and storyteller Marco Woolf headlines the Northern Connections tour, a new project showcasing emerging artists based in the North of England.
Influenced by the likes of Nick Drake and John Martyn, the music that Marco Woolf makes can prove similarly hard to categorise. Woolf wraps his delicate melodies in shimmering folk guitar and rippling kalimba, while pushing the music into unknown territory through often urgent jazz improvisation and post-rock. Joined on tour by some of the brightest talents on the Manchester scene, including composer and guitarist Carmel Smickersgill, pianist Tom Harris and drummer Miriam Willott, Woolf will showcase music that is as exploratory as it is tender.
