To say we’ve known about MiC LOWRY, most likely for a period of time much longer than you, is probably an understatement. Our then North East correspondent and head photographer Martin Sharman discovered their soulful harmonies when they performed at the delegates party at the Epstein Theatre the first night of Liverpool Sound City 2013. Fast forward a good 3, nearly 4 years, and the band are ready to go out on another tour of the UK next month.
The kind folks at Gigs and Tours have offered up a pair of tickets to the Birmingham date of said UK tour of the vocal harmony group. It’ll be at the Institute on the 19th of February, and all you have to do to put yourself in the running is to fill out the form located at the bottom of this post. It couldn’t be easier: all we need are your name, your email address (to contact you if you win) and your argument on why we should give you these tickets. From all the entries, we’ll choose a lucky winner. Be quick, as we’re closing the contest Friday at 5 PM UK time. Got it? Good. And good luck! To read more on MiC LOWRY on TGTF, go here.
