UTB Manchester presents... Sean McGowan Sean McGowan returns to Manchester with his band and a whole album of new songs this May. + support Doors - 7:00pm -- Sean McGowan You can sum up the journey of Se?n McGowan, the son of the smith, with the title of his first EP on Xtra Mile: Graft & Grief. Work and stress. Life at the anvil and hammer, bearing the brunt of life?s weight. Since 2009 he?s been at that grindstone, gathering stories and carving melodies while working late nights in bars between shows armed with just an acoustic guitar. Somehow the perpetual ?new artist?, even as others adorned with that title come and go, and Se?n is still at it allowing the songs to pour forth like the finest lager.
