ACOUSTIC singer-songwriter Chris Davis is back at The Cove to kick out monster tracks on Saturday, July 27 2019.
Since taking to the stage at 18, the Plymouth-born musician has been hooked on performing in front of a crowd.
He’s cut his teeth on stages throughout the South West, clocking up seven gigs a week to get his fix.
And as a result he’s built up a lengthy and eclectic list of classic songs from the 70’s to the present day, which sees him chop and chef from funk to folk, rock to rap and everything in between.
Not one for holding back or taking himself too seriously, he delivers a big sound in a lively and bouncy style which is quick to rub off on the audience.
It all starts at 9pm, admission is FREE.

Led by Jazz singer Ben Sutcliffe, his virtuoso violin styles have seen him play with the likes of Ralph McTell, The Levellers, The Stranglers, The Yardbirds, The 3 Daft Monkeys, and Gary Stringer from Reef.
