Oceanside Folk Roots Club producer Mick Sherlock said: “We’ve always tried to do a show for the people who might struggle at Christmas. Something a bit edgy. But this year we need to bring the community together with some feel good music. It has been a hard year for some people… This is comfort food in musical form.”
