12 songs which are both reflective and melancholic in a nod to the Scandi noir of the title but also wry and ultimately optimistic, all delivered in a richly toned vocal… if John Wayne had made a Scandinavian detective series this would be the soundtrack…..

The White Thorn Inn – Shaugh Prior – Plymouth PL7 5HA

Friday 17th November 2017 8:00 pm


This is rare opportunity to see Dan Donnelly (The Wonder Stuff and solo work) + Jon Sevink (Levellers) + Rev Hammer (Levellers acoustic and solo work) playing together.

This is the only gig in Dan and Jon’s tour being joined by Rev and promises a great night of top tunes and banter.

​The venue comes with excellent credentials as it is the new pub and venue recently taken on by lead singer and founder member of Mad Dog Mcrea, Michael Mathieson. The pub specialises in real ales and of course Guiness.
