Sea Fever, who released their debut album Folding Lines last year, will perform at the Old Courts on January 27 as part of their UK tour.

The five-piece formed in 2019, with Iwan Gronow, Beth Cassidy, Tom Chapman, Phil Cunningham and Elliot Barlow coming together.

Gronow said: “We wanted to work with each other for ages, so when we finally sat down in the studio, the band just seemed to come together naturally.

“It felt like we were really free to explore the kinds of music that have always inspired us, we dug right through the record crates of our minds to shape the sound of Sea Fever.”
