    'The Press Gang' with Tom Lewis (Music)

    7:30 pmSt Austell Arts Theatre

    Tom LewisThe Press Gang are delighted to offer this rare opportunity to see them perform alongside the world-famous Tom Lewis in Cornwall. Tom has been an inspiration to the group since they formed in 2012.
    Tom Lewis brings to the stage his wry humour, button accordion, ukulele, a great voice and his unique experience of more than 40 years of performing and touring, Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Europe, Canada and the United States, bridging the sea-going and folk-singing communities.
    The Press Gang have become regular guests at festivals throughout Cornwall and throughout the country where audiences have enjoyed their lively performances of songs and shanties of Cornwall and the sea. Throughout the last 10 years, the group has raised many thousands(£) for local charities.

    Tom Lewis has recorded 9 albums and is renowned for composing 'The Last Shanty' (A Sailor Ain't A Sailor), 'Sailor's Prayer' (Send Down A Dove), 'Legend' (Marching Inland), plus many other contemporary songs of the sea that have become folk standards, sung by groups around the world and known and sung wherever great choruses ring out.
    Tom accompanies himself on button accordion and ukulele—but it's that powerful vocal style and infectious humour—that quality of entertaining—which keeps audiences coming back again ... and again
