Will Varley @ Wedgewood Rooms Portsmouth

December 14, 2016 |

Half way through his biggest headline tour to date, folk singer song-writer Will Varley headlines the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth. There was only one support at this show and it came from seven piece folk band Cocos Lovers.

Cocos Lovers took to the stage not long after the doors opened. They opened with some slower paced songs littered with group vocals, which by the end of the songs had you singing along to. As expected with a seven piece the multiple instruments on show added great depth to their sound, particularly with the addition of a flute and a saw. In the middle of their set they slowed the pace right down and allowed flutist Nicola Vella to truly showcase her vocal ability. Following this they ended their set with some faster pace songs which really grabbed the crowd’s attention. This was an impressive support from Cocos Lovers particularly for a crowd which was here for one man only and that man is Will Varley.
