We are mega pleased to announce that The Pad in Bedford are bringing Mercury prize nominee GHOSTPOET back to Bedford’s Esquires, nearly two years after he last played there to a near sell out crowd on a warm Thursday in October 2011.
Ghostpoet’s debut album ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam’ marked him out as one of the most distinct, uncategorisable and forward-thinking voices to emerge in British music this decade, and it was rewarded with a surprise Mercury Prize nomination in 2011.
Since then the man formally known as Obaro Ejimiwe has been winning fans and touring the globe, more recently put the finishing touches to his highly anticipated second LP ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’, which is out at the beginning of May, just a month before this gig.
Support on the night is still to be confirmed, but trust us when we say you should probably get down early – last time he brought Alt J down as his support.
