The south martins
Sat 24th Jun 17 20:00 edit
Hopefully the name the Southmartins is fairly self-explanatory but, in short, they are a tribute to the songs of The Beautiful South and The Housemartins (with occassional forays into Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott's other work).
With an unbeatable songbook to draw upon including solid-bronze classics such as Happy Hour, Caravan of Love, Perfect 10, Don't Marry Her, You Keep It All In and many, many more our high energy live shows frequently sell-out in advance and garner rave reviews .
They are not trying to imitate or resurrect anything. They don't do all that dressing up stuff but they do have, what we think is, a healthy irreverance for the songs.
Sometimes they play them very much like the records and other times we take them somewhere else but all in the name of putting on a good show and putting a smile on the audience's face and a song in their collective big mouth.
