We’re excited to welcome Euros Childs back to Manchester, for the first time since 2017!

Euros Childs has been making music for over thirty years, as a solo artist and as the frontman of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. He’s released 19 solo albums to date, most of which have appeared on his own National Elf label. Since 2019 Euros has also been playing keyboards and lending his voice to Teenage Fanclub, appearing on their last two albums.

This tour will mark Euros’s return to the stage with a band for the first time in seven years. He’ll be joined by long-term collaborators Stephen Black (aka Sweet Baboo), Stuart Kidd (Kidd, The Wellgreen) and Selma French (Morgonrode, Frøkedal).

Expect a show full of life, zest and humour that draws on Euros’s extensive back catalogue as well as songs from his forthcoming album Beehive Beach, due in October.

Tour support comes from Selma French. Selma French is a Norwegian singer, composer and fiddle player. Her music reveals an admiration for Norwegian and English folk music, as well as containing an airy energy from somewhere unknown. The debut album Changes like the weather in the mountain, consisting of Selma’s songs wrapped in electric guitar, wurlitzer, fiddles and some high pitched choir voices, has already received numbers of great reviews.

Selma is already known in the folk-scene in Norway as a member of bands such as Norwegian grammy nominated Masåva and Norwegian grammy winner Morgonrode. She has toured and worked with with artists like Frøkedal & Familien, Siv Jakobsen and The Switch.
