A SINGER dubbed as “Brit-folk’s pretty new voice” will be appearing at Lancaster Library.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich will be conducting his UK tour throughout October, and the library spot is his last performance.

The extensive headline tour has been announced, as the countdown to the release of his hotly-anticipated debut album Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm continues.

The tour follows on from a huge summer, with Ben’s first headline tour of Ireland and a host of major festival appearances in the UK including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Leeds and Reading, Boardmasters, Green Man and Bestival.

Acclaim has been building for Benjamin Francis Leftwich since the release of his late 2010 EP A Million Miles Out, with solid backing from Radio 1, including a Maida Vale session with the Fleet Foxes, multiple Record Of The Week.

His debut single Box Of Stones was awarded Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World.

“A lot of the songs I wrote when I was about 17 or 18,” Benjamin says.
