Marquee Stage: Sunday 30 July
Chris Conway & Dan Britton began playing together 25 years ago and have been Leicester music scene favourites for as long. First known as two thirds of The Storm Thieves, before touring and recording as a duo, and lately are best known as part of popular Celtic band Govannen. They have opened for Bob Geldof, Jefferson Starship, Roy Wood & Frances Black. Govannen has taken much of their time lately, so to celebrate the 25 years working together, they recorded and their 3rd duo album Safe Harbour with new songs and some from their solo albums.
Multi-instrumentalists both, and accompanied by percussionist Neil Rabjohn they pack a big sound with keyboards, guitars, Irish whsitles, bodhran, cajon, kalimba and great harmony vocals.
