Third Barricade

Anyone familiar with the local acoustic scene will have surely heard of Steve Faulkner. He is a Hinckley/Leicester based singer songwriter, former front man of bands ‘The Heist’ and ‘Set in Stone’, Steve is a mainstay on the Leicester acoustic scene with his own heartfelt, yet powerful renditions of classic songs played alongside original material. So why are we pimping him here?

Now Steve is the Third Barricade!!!

We have enlisted him for Djembe duties at selected live gigs to add that something extra to our already stand out acoustic shows. Whenever we crossed paths on the acoustic scene in the past and Steve had his Djembe with him, he would jump onstage and play a few numbers with us and we always received great feedback from that. It seemed a natural step to have a few practices and do it properly.

We’ve done a few gigs together now and each one feels stronger. Please come down to our next few gigs to see this collaboration in action.
