Newton Faulkner

Colston Hall, Bristol

Shoeless, dreadlocks and totally mellow - Newton is surreal and sublime. He now has a large catalogue of songs to choose, delivering them all in his own inimitable way. Between songs he was witty, interesting and charmed the ecstatic crowd who sung along and laughed with him from the off.

He performed all the favourites and some of his great new albums songs including: If This Is It, the beautiful Dream Catch Me, I Need Something, Lipstick Jungle, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and She's Got Time complete with karaoke singalong lyrics :)

Sam Newton Battenberg Faulkner known for his guitar playing style, which involves rhythmically tapping and hitting the guitar's body, and finger-picking.

Badman, I took it out on you, To the light, I need something, Teardrop, If this is it, She's got the time Pt 1&2, Lipstick jungle, Won't let go, Resin, So much, Feels like home, Ageing superhero, Dream catch me, Let's get together, UFO, Gone in the morning
Bohemian rhapsody and I'm not giving up yet
