Neil Brophy Joins Ducking Punches And We Bless This Mess for UK Tour

New single ‘The One Man Folk Band’ To Be Released 17th November

Neil Brophy

Neil Brophy returns to the UK this November for a solo tour supporting UK acoustic punks Ducking Punches for 6 dates and some further shows with Blackbeard’s Tea Party.

Neil will be following up on his two recent UK tours sharing stages with Mad Dog Mcrea and Blackbeard’s Tea Party promoting the recent politically charged release ‘Fear Of Fear’ and upbeat uke/banjo driven ‘Where The Bears Go Fishing’.

’The One Man Folk Band’ is heart a felt four minute autobiography about traveling the world appearing on hundreds of stages where Neil feeds from his experiences of travel and performing.  Neil says that he will “Stand & Deliver every Song I’m Gonna Sing Ya, because I’m a One Man Folk Band in a Strange Land”.

Neil’s craft of storytelling never fails to paint a vivid picture.  He is living the dream again in this one, backed by a lifting acoustic guitar, mandolin & Dylan-esque harmonica.

One of Neil’s previous singles ‘The Record Collector’, released on Record Store Day, was championed by Steve Lamacq, receiving substantial airplay on BBC 6 Music.

The band has toured extensively in Northern Europe and Scandinavia becoming firm favourites on the festival circuit including multiple festival appearances in Germany, Holland and Belgium. UK festivals include Beautiful Days with The Levellers, Big Session and Middlewich Festival.
