PETER CONWAY supported by Josh Goodchild (winner of The Edge Factor 2016) : 8pm

Peter Conway is a unique singer songwriter and independent recording artist with an unforgettable voice and song delivery.
With two beautifully crafted albums 'Mother World' and 'Stay' released, this acclaimed singer songwriter has also already had eleven of his songs featured in nine original motion pictures, from Hollywood blockbusters and acclaimed documentaries, to award nominated British directorial debuts.

Further endorsement recently came when Peter was featured alongside artists such as Ben Howard and Jose Gonzales on the bestselling German singer songwriter compilation series 'SONGRISE', and was also featured singing the classic song of Nina Simone's 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' in the trailer of the American hit show Outsiders.

March 2017 sees Peter release his anticipated soundtrack song collection album Soundtracks Volume One, which features all his songs to date that have been in films and later in the year his third studio album 'Beyond The Frontier'.

Live Peter Conway's acoustic tours are being hailed as captivating, honest and one of a kind and in 2017 he will be playing across the UK and Europe.

"This man pours all of himself, every fibre, every sinew, every essence of his being and spirit into each syllable and note." Tim Carroll - Folk Words Live Review

Supported by JOSH GOODCHILD

Josh is almost 13, and started playing the keyboard at the age of 7 and writing songs at the age of 8.  He started piano lessons at the age of 10 and is now working towards Grade 6 in Rock & Pop.  He has never had lessons in classical piano, but has taught himself to play some well-known pieces such as Pachelbel's Canon and Beethoven's Fur Elise.  He doesn't particularly like reading music and gives his piano teacher a hard time as he has to learn to read music for his exams, but he really prefers to learn 'by ear' as this comes much more naturally to him. 
Josh has only performed a handful of times in public, and the Edge Factor talent show last November was his first performance outside of school, as well as his first competition, so he was thrilled to be the winner!
Although Josh is still only 12, his ambition is to be a singer-songwriter and record his own music and perform at events and stadiums.
