On the 6th August, The Hatter welcomes Lewis Spring, Hux, and Manouche Etcetera to his stage for a fantastic Live Lounge curated by the one and only Lee Bo.

Manouche Etcetera are a versatile new trio whose repertoire includes everything from fiery gypsy dances to curious klezmer and retro swing. Three musicians, in between moonlighting as a historian, a classicist and a theatre director, find themselves thrown together in Oxford by the fickle jazz-hand of fate…With tunes you’ll know, others you won’t, and some original material too, they’ll take you everywhere from the sultry slums of Buenos Aires to 1920s London or Paris.

HUX have been working the London circuit for the past few years, developing their sound from a broad range of influences, combining pop, rock, soul and acoustic music, centred on strong hooks, sweet melodies and feel-good rhythm. Having released new music during the pandemic, they are eager to get back on stage in the real world.

Lewis is a singer-songwriter hailing from east Oxford where he grew up. Lewis’s musical influences include artists such as Green Day, R.E.M., Bon Iver, Bear’s Den, Vance Joy and Kodaline, though he has also been moulded by his experience of traditional folk music, particularly English and Irish tunes.

In recent months Lewis has begun posting singles from his first original album, The Spider Tree, to Spotify, hoping to upload the whole album in the not distant future. The album features themes such as childhood, memory, jealousy, distance and space.
