Chips Takeover comes to V65

Artist Q&A: Gavin Osborn
Songwriter Gavin Osborn effortlessly blends wit and whimsy. His third album, 2012’s Come On Folks, Settle Down, tackled such topics as marriage, kids, fathers and sons, growing up, drinking tea, settling down and TV boffin Brian Cox. His collaborations with stand-up comedians include story and song sessions with Daniel Kitson, and most recently, tunes about rooms for Alun Cochrane’s Fun House for BBC Radio 4.
Gavin makes a number of appearances at Towersey Festival this year: Sunday 25 and Monday 26 August 2013, in The Hive, The Big Club, Venue 65 and a sneaky wee spot in the Childrens Festival. [read more]
