We’re delighted to be promoting Will Varley’s biggest Manchester show to date!

After selling out the Union Chapel in London last year, rambling folk singer Will Varley announces his biggest headline tour to date, culminating with a show at London’s legendary Shepherds Bush Empire.

Momentum has been growing around the young troubadour since the release of his fourth studio album Kingsdown Sundown and this year he is poised to bring his music to an even wider audience. The album was released in November 2016 to rave reviews, reaching number 5 in the Official Independent Album Breakers Chart and receiving four stars from The Independent.

Darkly comic, often politically charged and always emotionally loaded, Varley’s live shows have been drawing crowds across the world, and his headline tours have seen him selling out venues from Berlin to New York and everywhere in between. Last summer saw triumphant festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival, with packed tents shouting along to every word.
