With only a couple of weeks to go until our Christmas gig we thought it would be a good time to introduce you to one of our fantastic support acts!

We always like to showcase local talent at our gigs, and Liemba are no exception. Formed in late 2015 by established Brighton musicians Simon Gledhill and Nelson Day – Liemba combine acoustic song writing roots with a modern tilt – imagine CSNY meets the Kings of Convenience. They have recently added vocalist Damian Best to the fold and self-released their second EP “Burning Wicks” in Feb 2017. The band have made a name for themselves supporting artists such as Nizlopi and William the Conqueror and playing festivals including The Great Escape and Leigh-on-Sea Folk Festival. This has been solidified by their track ‘Dust’ getting BBC radio airtime.

All of the band’s music can be found on Spotify along with a Live Lounge session recorded at Brighton Electric.  Get listening so you can sing along at our gig!
