Liverpudlian singer and songwriter John Power first tasted success playing bass for The La’s through the late 80s, but he truly found his way into the public consciousness as the rhythm guitar-based frontman of Cast.
As the millennium came and went, Cast split in the same fashion as The La’s, and John Power embarked on a solo career as an acoustic-folk singer-songwriter, touring regularly as The John Power Band. However, by 2010 he had started playing Cast songs live and subsequently announced the band would reform.
Now, after a successful comeback tour and releasing a fan-supported fifth album, John Power returns to his acoustic roots.
Tickets are £12.00 and are available online and from OFS directly.
