Sam Lee to take compass point tour of London

Gigs & Festivals

Sam Lee

Mercury-nominated folker Sam Lee is to head out of a four day tour of some of London’s finer venues in the north, south, east and west of the city next month. Though he won’t be hitting the compass points in that order, so won’t be able to take advantage of the traditional “Never eat Shredded Wheat” aide memoire. Here’s a new one just for this tour: “Some elephants need whisky”.

The dates are as follows:

13 Feb: Bedford Arms
14 Feb: Cafe Oto
15 Feb: Cecil Sharpe House
16 Feb: Tabernacle

For tickets to the shows – south, east, north and west – just click the links.

Disclaimer: You should never give elephants whisky. Not even on their birthday or if they really beg.
