Humour, satire and plenty of great music with IR Loveworthy and friends...

WRY humour, poetic tendencies, fine folk music and a bit of social satire are all phrases used to describe local singer, songwriter and poet IR Loveworthy.

Find out for yourself with a night of music and humour at The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington on Saturday from 8.15pm.

Aka Tony Wade, in other guises he has played Celtic and Balkan folk and for many years played and led samba.

‘Eclectic’ would go some way towards describing his music – his wide musical experiences, many diverse influences and a unique take on things have all had an influence on his work.

Saturday’s gig is a fund raiser for The Plough and for Bude Sea Pool.

Tony will share his absurdist musings and laughable vocal novelties that cross all barriers of style and good taste, to emerge as artfully decorated morsels of tasteful light entertainment.

He will be supported by some fine local musicians on bass, clarinet, fiddle, ukulele, percussion and backing vocals performing original songs of wry humour, satire, social comment and odd love, in styles ranging through fickle folk, cautionary country, Latin cafe and ‘bolshie blues’.
