Festival favourite, wildly innovative music maker, professional party starter and all round lovable legend, Mr Scruff is back in Birmingham ready to do his inimitable thing. With four critically acclaimed albums selling over half a million records worldwide, plus countless tours and club events including his own residency (and of course well-snazzy tea shop) in hometown of Manchester, plus his own brand of tea-bags and illustrated potato people, Scruff has always defied all the conventional rules and his reputation and talents means he hardly needs the hard sell. Suffice to say tickets are likely to sell-out pronto so don’t hang about. Musically you can expect nothing short of the wildly unexpected apart from the absolute certainty that your feet will move and spirits lift. All hail the Mancunian musical maverick’s return.
