Otis Gibbs comes to Hampshire

Post by KenB » Thu Nov 08, 2012 9:00 pm

Fresh from his tour supporting the great Ian Hunter, Otis returns to England early next year.....and he'll be playing in the historic and awesome surrounds of The Square Tower in Old Portsmouth, on Wednesday 6th February. See bottom of page for ticketing details.

Otis Gibbs is a man in search of an honest experience. Gibbs is often referred to as a folk artist, but that is a simplistic way to describe a man who has planted 7,000 trees, slept in hobo jungles, walked with nomadic shepherds in Romania, was a 5th grade Yo-Yo champion and once wrestled a bear (and lost!).

Otis has played countless theatres, festivals, bars and house concerts, and has managed to carve out a living, while remaining happily independent. Much of his work concentrates on the world ignored by pop culture. Sometime forgotten, obsolete or simply marginalised, it is a world that doesn’t fit into a 20 second sound bite or talking point.

Otis has spent the last 15 years travelling around America and abroad, documenting this world and has a story to share about each stop along the way.

“This bearded idealist from Indiana is the Real Deal: gritty, angry and concerned”. (The Times)

“This album puts Otis Gibbs into the same class as Dylan, but with an openness in his songs that few, if any, can match”. (Maverick)

Tickets are £10 each in advance (£11 on the door), and can be purchased securely online via : http://www.wegottickets.com/event/179524 or at http://www.squarerootspromotions.co.uk
Be great to see you there :)
