Three-piece international ensemble Il Sogno Del Marinaio (featuring legendary bass player Mike Watt - Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges, J. Mascis & The Fog, Stefano Pilia on guitar and introducing new drummer Paolo Mongardi) is looking ahead to a month-long trek across Europe between September and October, still promoting their second album 'Canto Secondo' and 'The Whistling' EP from 2016. In between jazz innuendos, post-rockish soundscapes blown by a dry desert wind and good old rock'n'roll, their show is at the same time a celebration of technical mastery and of the pure, unadulterated joy of making music together.

Il Sogno Del Marinaio play Regather straight after a live set on BBC 6Music with Marc Riley. Hitting the road to bring their music to the good folks of Sheffield.

Support comes from Sheffield's very own masters of gothic Americana, The Payroll Union. Since forming in 2011, they have given a voice to tales from frontier America, scribed and narrated - nay preached - by Pete David, weaving his stories into the harmonious weft thread produced by Ben (drums), Paul (bass) and Tom (guitar). Mike Watt has played tracks from the band's last record, Paris of America, on his 'The Watt from Pedro Show' radio show.
