The Bubble Club sets out to bring established musicians and exciting, new acts to East Kent.
Its next event is headlined by Will Varley, who is no stranger to these parts. Though he originates from London, Will chose to make Deal his home in recent years where he co-founded the record label Smugglers Records.
No ordinary folk musician, the 27-year-old blends storytelling and comedy into his act, drawn from his fascinating life experiences of more than 10 years of solid gigging, travelling the length and breadth of the country with his guitar, often on foot and sleeping in a tent.
“People are amazed when you arrive in their town and say you’ve walked there. It brings a sense of magic to the show,” says Will, who has only just completed a 450-mile walk along the south coast from Penzance to Deal, performing at venues along the way while raising money for Bowel Cancer UK.
Will effortlessly follows a shaggy dog story or a roaring talking blues with a heartbreaking ballad or fiery protest song. His second album, As The Crow Flies, has being described as “powerful, political, and pertinent” by The Independent, and he was also nominated as best male singer in the 2014 Spiral Earth Awards.
Complementing his self-directed music videos, the young troubadour’s live performances have become more and more anarchic over the years and you are promised no less if you attend his performance at the Bubble Club. Audience interaction, surreal comedy, and stunts like playing two songs at once have made him a firm favourite.
