Ben Calvert-Live Music In Blackpool


Singer-songwriter Ben Calvert will be launching his new EP Inside Outside at The Old Electric, Blackpool on Friday 7th October.

(Due to unforeseen circumstances this show has been rescheduled to 12th May 2023.)

This will be the first time a gig has been presented at the Old Electric. Ben is no stranger to drama spaces, having studied experimental theatre at Dartington College of Arts in the Nineties. As a theatre practitioner he’s adapted and acted in a version of Shakespeare’s King Lear for two actors at the Edinburgh Fringe. He’s already got connections to The Old Electric having worked on a project with owner Melanie Whitehead, where research in The Forest of Dean and London lead to a performance based on the life, works and subject matter of TV playwright Dennis Potter, attended by Potter’s long-term collaborator, Kenith Trodd.

Dropping in time for Halloween, Inside Outside has a spooked atmosphere. Lyrically, it focusses on mysticism, religious figures, icons and symbols, and the moments when the spirit escapes the human body.
