On Friday, August 17, St. Austell will be coming over all autumnal as Cornish singer October will be unleashing her own brand of rock on the Eden Café.

With her raw, powerful voice, skilled guitar playing and finely wrought lyrics, October’s surf-rock sound is a firm favourite on the festival scene, seeing her play nine stages at Glastonbury Festival in three years.

She has also played at the Albert Hall, performed live on BBC Radio One and sung with the likes of the BBC Big Band and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. In addition, October has featured on the soundtrack of acclaimed surf film Lost & Found, winner of the 2011 Viewer’s Choice Award at the New York Surf Film Festival.

October also plays as part of a three-piece known collectively as October. Joined by Darren Curgenven on drums and Giles Woolley on guitar, October fronts the band with her warm, heart-felt vocals.

On Friday, October will be playing with a variety of special guests.

Ashley Van Dyck, Eden Café Manager, said: “October has an incredible voice. The last time she played at the café, she blew the crowd away and we’re expecting a fantastic repeat performance.”

The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight with doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets cost £5, or £4 for concessions or tickets bought at the café beforehand.

A range of refreshing summer drinks will be available and food, including the new antipasti platter, will be on offer until 9pm.
