SHROPSHIRE’S answer to Frank Turner, Paul Henshaw returns to The Cove armed with his powerful brand of acoustic rock ’n’ roll folk punk on Friday, May 17.

Thumping lumps out of his guitar and singing passionately about life, love and hangovers, he’s one of the genre’s hardest workers – touring relentlessly across the UK, Europe and afar.

Also hailed as a cross between Billy Bragg and Tom Robinson for passion and meaning, he wears his heart on his sleeve – winning over crowds during support slots for Newton Faulkner, John Otway, Attila the Stockbroker and The Blockheads.

With recent number 1’s in the Amazon Folk charts, this guy is as real as you can get.

Expect to get truly sucked in.

Live from 9.30pm, admission is free.
