Bank Holiday Live Acoustic Music with Gary Nock

Producer, musician, singer, published songwriter and seasoned performing artist, Gary has toured the world several times over.

In March this year (2019) another song of Gary’s called ‘Whats A Song’, which Gary wrote with singer Joel Baker, was released on Virgin EMI in March 2019, and has picked up radio play worldwide and received critical acclaim.

A producer and songwriter by day, published by legendary band Snow Patrols Publishing Company – ‘Polar Patrol (now Polar Spirit B-Unique)’. Gary has worked with some of the country’s brightest up and coming artists including Jamie Lawson & Dagny amongst many others as well as many established acts.

A live performer by night, Gary goes out armed with an acoustic guitar, microphone and Fishman SA220 Solo Amp and performs a mix of originals and covers varying from 60s through to modern day, from The Beatles & The Kinks to Ed Sheeran & James Bay and everything in between.

He’s shared the stage with many great contemporaries including Jamie Lawson, Ed Harcourt & Newton Faulkner to name but a few, as well writing and recording with some amazing songwriters and producers. You can download all of Garys music on iTunes or stream on Spotify…

We’re very excited to be having Gary here- and we hope you’ll join us for some laid back bank holiday vibes in the bar!
