With every ticket sold and every place filled, last night’s show by Tom Williams at The Printworks was a fitting complement to a musician who is rapidly finding favour on the national stage with regular BBC Radio 2 and BBC6Music airplay.

Catch him next at The Scala in London.

Tom Williams, Mike Wilton & Bev Lee Harling

We last saw Tom playing a mellow acoustic set over at the De La Warr Pavillion.

Tonight, however, he's out with the full band and kicking up a serious storm.

This sold-out night at The Printworks was truly life-affirming stuff.

As front man of The Standard Lamps Mike has supported The Who and The Bluetones...and tonight's acoustic set shows just why his band fully deserves the limelight. [flickr_set id="72157675943713477"]
With a percussive take on playing the fiddle, Bev has a refreshingly genuine sound that is all her own. [flickr_set id="72157706199281704"]
