The Congleton-raised singer-songwriter Adam French follows up his October EP, More To Life, with a five-date UK tour in 2016. Now based in London, the 22-year-old captured hearts and minds at the likes of Festival No 6 earlier this year and has gained plaudits over the airwaves, such as on Huw Stephens’ BBC Introducing show. These five shows are much closer to home than his breakthrough 2013 tour of Africa – a path seldom trodden by UK musicians looking for their big break. It’s all part of the life experience that informs his songs, and his emotionally charged delivery is sure to enrapture.
