Harvest Sun head to The Shipping Forecast this week, where in association with Liverpool Music Magazine Bido Lito! Neville Skelly will be playing a rare hometown gig.

Fresh from his support slot at Liverpool’s iconic Philharmonic Hall where he shared a stage with The Coral, Neville Skelly will appear at the monthly Bido Lito! Social Club this Thursday (21st July)

Formerly the lead vocalist of his own swing orchestra, the Liverpudlian troubadour has changed direction for his recent opus.

Running the gamut of influences from George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra on to The Beatles’ and T. Rex, the singer has recently won praise for his new LP Poet and the Dreamer.

Released in May, the project took four years to guide to completion. Featuring cover versions of standards by The Beatles, Phil Ochs, Marc Bolan, Woody Guthrie and Jackson C. Frank, the album was co-produced by Ian and James Skelly of The Coral.

Recipient of four star reviews from Uncut and Mojo, the latter publication described his music as ‘Magical, eerily beautiful.’

Support on the night comes from Martin Stilwell and Sunstack Jones plus The Coral, who be performing a DJ set.
