SS Great Britain announce line-up for their Summer Lates Series
The iconic SS Great Britain has announced an exciting new Summer Lates Series, with their full line-up now released
The SS Great Britain has announced the full line-up for its new Summer Lates Series taking place from 7th-28th July onboard the famous historical boat.
With exciting bands and music confirmed, the event is set to allow people to step onto the deck of an evening, drink local beer, wine and cider, and to listen to live music while the sun goes down over the harbourside.
The events will begin on Thursday 7 July and, on arrival, you’ll find a pop-up bar with a special signature cocktail, local beer and cider, and a food offering, all alongside local musicians.
Further Summer Lates will be held on 15 July, 21 July, 28 July.
It doesn’t have to be all about the music, though, and the cultural trip out to the SS Great Britain can be a part of it too.
During the Summer Lates events, you can also enjoy exploring the boat without the crowds and head into the dramatic dry dock.
So, let’s take a look at the fully confirmed line-up. First up, and introducing the exciting event, is Gwyd Ion on Thursday 7 July.
The bilingual artist blends soulful singing with blues and jazz-inspired guitar and his set for the SS Great Britain is a combination of layered improvisational guitar and vocals, reworked classics, and his own Welsh language songs.
Second on the programme is Miya The Sun, a Bristol-based band that form a unique blend of Neo-Soul, Alternative Jazz Hip-Hop and Funk and who will play on 15 July.
The band craft feel-good tunes which never fail to get a crowd grooving.
The third confirmation comes in the form of the Mighty Shinkickers on 21 July.
Hailing from the fields of the west country, the Mighty Skinkickers will bring shanties to the SS Great Britain and use their music to explore the rural and seafaring heritage of the misty west.
Finally, the Summer Lates Series will conclude with Bronwyn Leonard and Jake Morgan on the 28 July. Bronwyn Leonard is a soulful, sultry-voiced singer/songwriter with a love for Jazz and Soul music, while Jake Morgan is a folk singer from Bristol.
What else do you need to know? The events will each start at 6:30 pm and tickets are available now for £11 from the SS Great Britain website.
