Ex-circus clown and fire-eater, Rory McLeod, headlines The Finedon Sessions on Friday.

McLeod is one of the UK’s very best live roots musicians and songwriters.

He combines everything from virtuoso harmonica and spoons playing to a percussive, rhythmic guitar style that can echo reggae and blues and folk and South American music.

This modern day poet, storyteller and one-man soul-band delivers his own upbeat stories and mesmerising yarns as well as singing original songs with brilliant lyrics and employing tap dancing, harmonica, guitar, trombone, spoons, finger cymbals, bandorea, djembe and percussion.

Support is by Dan Whitehouse. The Finedon Sessions take place at the village’s community centre in Wellingborough Road.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10.
