Mano McLaughlin Acoustic Night

Join us at The Creameries for a special Sunday night gig with Mano McLaughlin. Mano is one of the most authentic and unique songwriters in the country. Revered and cherished by his peers but without sharing their acclaim, he is the UK's best-kept musical secret. His songs are timeless and weave bitter-sweet pop and folk melodies with lush harmonies. His idiosyncratic lyrics tell stories, jokes, and poke sticks into wasps' nests. Mano's distinctive voice can deliver punches, one-liners and arrows to the heart, with a wry, distinctly northern warmth.

Bar open till 10pm
