I curate and host a regular music night called the Defiance Sessions celebrating music with something to say. The gigs take place in Glossop, Derbyshire and are all about songwriting that challenges an audience, songs with a conscience, stories of real people and real lives, and songs and that have a defiant and rebellious spirit.
From January through to May 2018 I have been trialling them as a monthly gig. Amongst the acts lined up for the first half of 2018 have been Maddy Carty, Steve White & the protest Family, Claire Mooney, Lily Gaskell, John D Revelator, Johnny Campbell, Efa Supertramp, Chuck SJ Hay, Eliza P and Tracey Curtis.
