Danny Schmidt at Grateful Fred's

This Thursday, 7 July, Grateful Fred presents Danny Schmidt from Austin, Texas. He has a big reputation in the USA where Sing Out Magazine described him as “the best new songwriter we’ve heard in 15 years” and after three tours of the UK he has a growing following here too. 

"In his use of parable and allegory, there are inevitable comparisons with Cohen and Dylan, but these are songs of such quality and beauty that they more than hold their own in this exalted company."  5 stars out of 5, Maverick Magazine UK.

There are support acts and the gig begins at 8.00pm.  Tickets are £6.50.  To learn more about Danny and how to get tickets, click here.

Grateful Fred's is at the Freshfield Hotel, Massams Lane, Formby (a short walk from Freshfield Station). The pub has 9 real ales and a real cider.


  1. This was an excellent night and I'm glad I went. The Grateful Fred nights are well worth supporting.

    There isn't a night in August, so the next is on 1st September: UK-based Bluegrass/Americana group, The Toy Hearts

  2. Thanks for your support Nev.
