+ SUPPORT FROM GAVIN OSBORN
Mixing the personal with the political, Gavin Osborn has spent fifteen years entertaining audiences across the UK, Europe and Australia with his deft lyricism, evocative heartwarming storytelling and quick wit. Familiar to BBC Radio 4 and 6Music listeners and his tours with the likes of Grace Petrie and MJ Hibbett, Gavin has released five acclaimed solo albums. The Observer called his last album (Echo Bridge) “one of the year’s most relatable releases, a record about being frustrated, angry, bewildered and aware of the utter ridiculousness of a world that has moved past your point of understanding”.
