GALLERY: Liam Fray / Carnival Club, Albert Hall, Manchester (3/11/17)

The Courteeners frontman Liam Fray went back to his roots with a mesmerising solo acoustic set at Manchester’s Albert Hall last week. Long before enjoying the considerable success of his band, Fray initially developed his skills as a solo performer playing countless shows in and around the Manchester area from which he hails.

It was an intimate set-up, far removed from the raucous, full band set-up that fans will be more familiar with. But with the crowd singing back almost every word, what was lacking in volume was more than made up for in atmosphere.

Local four-piece Carnival Club provided the support, with a bold, confident set that belied their relative lack of experience of such large venues. Expect to hear/see more of this rock & roll outfit.
