Michael Hurley (aka Doc Snock) is a quiet legend, a wry conspirator in the stand-up of life. ‘The world is his front porch’ and, come June, the American alt-folk icon’s vista will be a collection of very special venues in Scotland, England and Ireland.

The 76-year-old Hurley has been making music for nigh on 50 years. Having broken ground as part of the Greenwich Village folk movement of the 1960s, he continues to perform his uniquely crafted – and vast – catalogue of tunes, performing odes to aliens, tea and women for spellbound audiences at home in the US and abroad.

As content playing small-town folk nights as he is performing alongside the likes of Kurt Vile, Meg Baird and Sharon Shannon, Hurley last play...ed the UK in 2013 and is excited to return for more.

With an Australasia tour halfway done and dusted, 2018 is already proving a busy year – but as Hurley admits, ‘It’s quiet in Brownsmead Hill’. While it may interrupt tinkering on his 1968 Chevrolet Impala and 1973 Dodge wagon, another jaunt around the UK is something to anticipate and celebrate.

‘Hurley remains one of the elusive masters of American folk’ – Billboard

This show is a co-promotion with Comfortable On A Tightrope.
