Latitude 2009

Countdown to Latitude...Gruff Rhys

GRUFF RHYS

His day job is as front man and principal singer-songwriter with Super Furry Animals, but Rhys will go it (almost) alone when he plays the Uncut Arena on the closing day of The Latitude Festival.

Recent solo LP ‘Candylion’ was a magical mix of Syd Barrett, Nick Drake, Focus, Fairport Convention et al, but also summoned the spirits of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Sergio Mendes, De La Soul, Dave Brubeck, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Wings, 10cc, Juan García Esquivel and ‘The Magic Roundabout’ and his set promises to both dazzle and delight.

Gruff Rhys plays the Uncut Arena on Sunday July 15. Latitude takes place July 12 - 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
