Sean McGowan at Santiago Leeds

Sean will be joined at Santiago on 1 June by a full live band to perform tracks from Son of The Smith, his debut album released on 11 May.

Son of The Smith delivers punk-poetry and protest songwriting fit for fans of Billy Bragg and Frank Turner, both of whom have given the nod of approval to Sean’s work.  Sean supported Billy Bragg late last year and began 2018 in support of Will Varley.

13 tracks and a hint of humour reveal how Sean views the every day, from a bank card declined to an underground journey to commercial fakery.

If you’re already a fan, no doubt you’ll be headed for Santiago on 1 June, but if you’re curious about the man, buy a ticket here
