Wes Finch is a midlands based singer, guitarist and songwriter with a passion for poetry and a good song.
Fronting roots ensemble 'The Dirty Band' for many years, Wes has also recorded various solo EPs and albums, most notably 2015's acclaimed 'Awena' album.
This year sees the formation of side project 'The Rude Mechanicals' whose first album 'Exit, Pursued by Bear', released in April, takes words from Shakespeare and sets them to new folk and classical inspired tunes.

Described as "a gem of an album, combining bittersweet contemporary style acoustic ballads, with Shakespeare’s words and a subtle folk-blues swing." by FATEA magazine.

Last seen here supporting Dar Williams, Wes is looking forward to returning to Tittensor, this time bringing with him his band members Jools Street (violin) and Ben Haines (percussion) who will accompany him through a selection of original songs, old favourites, Rude Mechanicals numbers and some brand new material from a forthcoming EP to be released this year.

​ "...a welcome and singular addition to the list of newbloods reinvigorating British folk music...Non-trad acoustic roots delivered with an edgy, risk-taking sonic boldness"
Nigel Williamson - 'Uncut Magazine'

Supporting Wes and the boys at Tittensor will be Sophia Marshall
Sophia, who is from Leicestershire, is formerly one half of the acclaimed Alt-country/Americana duo 'The HaveNots'.
She has played hundreds of gigs across three continents, from the tiniest dives to the grandest theatres. Sophia has delighted audiences with her spellbinding voice and songs - often likened to singers such as Hope Sandoval, Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch.
Since the launch of her solo career in 2014, she has continued to develop and hone her own musical voice, showcasing her individuality alongside fond influences worn proudly on her sleeve but always presented with sincerity and sometimes painful honesty.
Sophia’s gloriously sad ballads and strong sultry vocal performances reach out across genres to break any listener’s heart, whilst her more upbeat indie/folk numbers will put smiles on faces and set toes tapping.
