Pigeon Hands are rounding off the year with three wise satsumas of the Sheffield songwriting scene, and one holy Mary (Street, no. 99).

Following their joint tour and sold-out homecoming show at Bishops House in August, we're very excited to have James Ewan Tait and Robbie Thompson share the stage again. Joined this time by the prolifically talented songwriter/pal, Bethan Robinson, in the beautiful red-brick gallery of 99 Mary Street.

* James Ewan Tait *
That Gretsch wielding, three amp using, experimental/weirdo crooner, noted for his "impressive range" and "deeply personal delivery" (Now Then). James began the year with a video premiered by For the Rabbits, and spent much of 2018 chipping away at new recordings, playing shows and festivals up and down the country, and laying the ground work for his Pigeon Hands label. Much more to come in 2019.
Oh, and he's also now on Spotify, probably.

* Robbie Thompson *
Post-industrial travelling troubadour, perpetual poet, and The Buffalo Skinners' humble heart-throb. Robbie fervently considers life with depth and compassion, and strives to authentically communicate his musings through song. In 2018 Robbie has gone electric for the first time, taken his solo set on the road for the first time, and begun work on a new solo recording project which should come to fruition next year.

* Bethan Robinson *
2018 has seen this former Jupiter in Jars front-woman and primary songwriter establish herself as a solo force to be reckoned with. Whether telling of strangers on a train, or a lifetime's worth of family love, Beth's songs exude imagery and charm. With hooks that we'll all be happily humming long into the new year, and a simple message that we can all take home this holiday season: Be kind to yourself, and love those around you.

All proceeds will go to You Don't Know Jack, in fondest memory of our absent friend, Jack Ritchie.
