Chuck Fish

Friday 14 December 2018, 9.00pm - 11.00pm

Hailing from the Columbia Basin of Eastern Washington, Chuck Fish has been spreading his own blend of Alt-Folk and Americana far and wide. Currently residing in The Lake District of Northern England playing heart felt and authentic music in various pubs and clubs from Carlisle to Camden Town, and anywhere in between. Often solo, but often drawing fellow local musicians into the mix.
With subject matter revolving around love gone wrong, travel, and sobriety lost, he is able to strike a chord with most audiences. A raw, rugged vocal approach, and jangling guitars harking back to days of rail-jumping and dingy smoke filled bars.
