GIG NEWS: Federal Charm tour June/July 2016

2015 was a great year for classic rockers Federal Charm; their second album 'Across The Divide' was released and met with critical acclaim both in the UK and abroad.  They play Gullivers Manchester on June 11th, Picturedrome Holmfirth on 12th June, The Leopard Doncaster on 1st July and Adelphi Hull on 13th July


UK shows with Black Star Riders, Joanne Shaw Taylor and UFO and slots on the main stage at the Minehead Giants of Rock, The Rock & Blues Festival in Skegness, and at Hard Rock Hell 9 in Pwllheli sealed a definitive year for the Manchester born ensemble.

The twin guitars of Nick Bowden and Paul Bowe are intricate and polished, with Bowden’s vocals defying conventional range and Bowe’s captivating showmanship. The two guitar prodigies are ably assisted by the rhythm section of bassist L.D Morawski and Danny Rig on drums, making for an exciting act that are already being hailed as the ‘next big thing’ in the new wave of alternative blues rock bands.

2016 is shaping up in a similar manner with Giants Of Rock (again), a Planet Rock sponsored UK tour in March with Australian rockers Tracer, and the second release from ‘Across The Divide’ –  ‘Guess What’ – play-listed at Planet Rock for 6 week. ‘Master Plan’ will be released to coincide with the ‘Crossing The Divide’ tour.
