A PLUM event is in the offing in the Vale of Clwyd next month.

Denbigh Plum presents Steve Knightley in a folk and acoustic concert on February 22.

He will be on stage at Theatr Twm o'r Nant, in Denbigh, from 7.30pm.

Steve is the singer-songwriter from the duo Show of Hands, who have had no fewer than five sell-out concerts at the Albert Hall.

A constant throughout Knightley’s work is his ability to root his songs in geographical place, notably the West Country where he still lives.

His gift for talking to people, listening to them and distilling the encounter into song is evident throughout his work; a talent that was highlighted in the Carlton TV documentary Stairway to Devon (2000) for which he toured the county talking to local craftsmen and performed a song inspired by those meetings at the end.

Informed by a love of folk ballads, Knightley writes historically accurate songs that resonate with contemporary meaning.

He has an extraordinary ability to conflate time and space to bring history vividly, smack bang into the present.

It’s an ability that fuels his reputation as an ‘issues’ writer.

Tickets for the February 22 show are priced at £18 and doors at Theatr Twm o'r Nant will open at 7pm.

See theatr-twm-or-nant.org.uk for ticket information.

Proceeds will go towards the Denbigh Plum Group.
