Morris is no minor act

A RISING star from the county will be performing at a Hubberts Bridge pub as part of his EP release tour.

Lincolnshire acoustic singer-songwriter Elliott Morris will be performing at the Wheatsheaf as part of his UK and Ireland concert series.

Elliott has recently risen through the music ranks featuring on a number of BBC channels and gaining a nationwide following.

His new release As the Waves Came In is a four-track studio release of new songs The End of the World, Stand Up, Be Heard, The Great Escape and I Can’t See, while Take One is a special live acoustic EP recorded at the Room Upstairs at Lincoln Drill Hall and VC Studios.

They were both released on iTunes on September 10 and are available from his gigs, with Take One available free of charge.

The 22-year-old performer began playing electric guitar when he was 11, but launched his solo set at 17 on acoustic.

He said he is influenced by the likes of Eric Roche, Michael Hedges, Newton Faulkner, Frank Turner, Dave McPherson, InMe, Reuben, Seth Lakeman, Biffy Clyro, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, The Who and David Gray.

His extensive tour is taking Elliott across the British Isles from Ullapool in Scotland across to Ireland and closer to home.

The gig at the Wheatsheaf starts at 9pm and is free to enter.
