Our Man In The Field + Helen Walford
Think of Our Man In The Field – aka Alexander Ellis – as an independent correspondent with his works dispatches from his travels. So classically crafted are Ellis’ songs that you could be forgiven for thinking you have heard Our Man In The Field somewhere before. Alex takes inspiration from the alt-Americana and Caledonian soul stylings of Van Morrison, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Ryan Adams and Wilco.
His own sound is indefinable yet familiar- its introspective, intimate and deeply soulful style standing comfortably alongside modern-day artists Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice and Foy Vance.
Alex is returning to his roots with an intimate performance in the delightful Georgian Drawing Room setting of the Foxlowe Arts Centre Cafe, Leek.
Support provided by Leek’s own US-import Americana singer/songwriter Helen Walford.
