Grant Sharkey is arranging another tour, and we are delighted that he is returning to The Pot for the third time.
He’s left-wing. He sings what he thinks. He says what he wants.
He’s funny, yet serious and even though he sang a song about Wetherspoons he actually managed to grab a 5 minute interview with founder Tim Martin.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (recommended) review in Three Weeks for Trollbadour!
“Grant Sharkey plays slap double bass, ukekele and sings well but, even more importantly, he’s a proper left-wing, risk-taking satirist, who delights in dividing the audience over his uncompromising opinions and high-octane swearing. His audience interaction can feel a bit like martial arts, as he uses the other person’s own weight (their opinion) against them, but – unlike in judo – he then goes home and writes a song about it. His songs are funny, jazzy and all self-penned; I enjoyed his political material but took exception to his harsh words about ukuleles, though true to his own principles he wouldn’t back down. If you can take the swearing I’d recommend a visit because he’s a great bass player and really opens up political debate to all.
