Local duo, Candacraig, to launch album at the Playhouse

Sharon and Martin are familiar faces in Sleaford, as they have gigged locally in various guises over the years, recently with "Rock Vixen”, an act that is a regular visitor to Sleaford Legion, and also from local tribute band “Planet ABBA”.  And who remembers them from “Time is Money”? Sleaford’s own Pink Floyd tribute, who played a sell-out show here at the Playhouse. Expect to hear a little bit of Pink Floyd amongst their original music at this October’s album launch.

The "Help Musicians" award winners appearing as "Candacraig" will launch their new album “Thunder of Whispers” with a live show at the Sleaford Playhouse Theatre on Friday, October the 21st.

The duo were awarded the Recording and Releasing Music (Do it Differently) award by the "Help Musicians" initiative. The award has helped Candacraig to re-mix and re-master their first album and is helping to fund a digital campaign to enable the duo to connect with their audience once the album has been launched, as well as helping to build their fanbase and teach them how to market themselves as independent musicians.



In addition to their neo-prog/folk/singer-songwriter repertoire, the duo will treat the audience to a selection of songs by the artists who have influenced their debut album. Expect music from the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and The Who, amongst others.

Singer Sharon Cannings and guitarist Martin Nicholls will be accompanied by a full band comprised of a wealth of local talent: Sleaford personality Chris (Christmas) Clark will take time out from Basil Brush to fulfil duties on bass, and backing vocals, Krim Palmer of Shug Studios, Soaper and Bear Makes Ninja will be on drums and Michael (Twitch) Latham of Fresh 90s and international touring artist Maxx, is on keyboards.
