B’ham Arts Festival preview

Nice mention from stalwart scribe of the West Midlands music scene for many years Mike Davies in his preview of this years Birmingham Arts Festival

Off the radar for far too long, Gary O’Dea’s Cosmic Souls (5pm, Waterstones) sees the Tipton singer-songwriter working with a new band, adding extra warmth to his cocktail of blues, country, soul and  rock n’ roll. They’ll be performing material from new album Looking Forward By Thinking Back, a collection of reworked past material such as Slim Chance styled mandolin good time shuffle Sittin’ On Your Fence, the Van Morrison-like Way Back Home and, conjuring Martin Stephenson while referencing The Clash, My Sweet Rita.
