You can’t beat a bit of dark folk – it’s uplifting whilst at the same time plumbing the depths of despair.

Freddy Fudd Pucker is a timely tonic for anyone wit the midweek blues, and his set in support of Tim Loud set the tone perfectly for the set to come.

Tim took the stage and immediately launched into his unique brand of ‘punkountry’ – a contemporary take on the traditions of country folk injected with the fiery attitude of punk culture.

The Palace remains one of our favourite venues in town right now for hosting out-of-town acts who are just a little bit different.
