livestreaming from Preston April 2020

Adventures in Mexico February 2020

In 2017 Sweeney Astray released an EP entitled “Flow” – which is available to download or listen to on Tunecore, Amazon, Googleplay, CD Universe, Spotify, ITunes and more. You can also buy or order this from Action Records, an independent record store based online and in Preston, Lancashire in the north of England. 

In 2018 I’ve been playing regular solo gigs in the Preston area with It’s Live Agency.

Previous gigs include playing live at Cloudspotting Festival 2017, Plungington Gin Festival 2017 and in the BBC radio tent at Lytham Festival 2017 (our third appearance this year on the Sally Naden and Bret Davison morning show). Closing Ribchester Music Festival 2015 with Sweeney Astray. I also performed as a solo artist regularly at Seafood Pub Restaurants in the north west.

Sweeney Astray played six venues over the weekend of Lancaster Music Festival this October 2017.

Our line up has included Katie Ritson (RNCM music graduate); Hannah Dacey (graduate of the Royal College of Music London) who plays piano, violin and double bass; Anna Ashworth (drums/percussion); bassist Shug Millidge and guitarist Jamie Brewer.
