ACOUSTIC rock force Martyn Crocker promises to shake things up on his debut at The Cove on Saturday, April 16.

The Ivybridge-based musician has built up a glowing reputation on the local circuit for delivering honest, compelling and engaging shows.

With new track Abacus making ‘Upload of the Week’ on BBC Introducing in Devon and big support in the local press, Crocker is keen to build on the momentum by cramming in as many gigs as possible.

And along with support in young folk prospect Calvin Thomas, expect something special in Hope Cove that reinvigorates the idea of singer-songwriter.

Fans of The Smiths, Brand New and Nirvana (Unplugged) need to get this date down.

With influences such as Dylan, Springsteen and Pearl Jam, Thomas seals the deal.

Live from 9.30pm, admission is free.

Music Meal Deals with 2-4-1 Pizzas will once again be in operation – booking is advised.
