The first night of the week-long Nantwich Words and Music Festival kicked off with 90s Brit-pop group ‘Dodgy’.
They were supported by talented singer songwriter Hannah Brown, from Nottingham, who performed original and cover songs including originals ‘ Bad Guy’ and ‘Feel that Way’.
She also performed covers of Chaka Khan’s ‘Aint Nobody’ which the audience instantly recognised, and a new song by upcoming star Rhodes, called ‘Breathe’.
It was a fantastic opportunity for Hannah – who is new to the music scene to showcase her talents.
She said at the end of her set: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for listening to my music. It is nice that people appreciate what I do. ”
The audience were very praising of her music – and gave her a massive round of applause.

It was the perfect warm up for the main act the crowd was anticipating – the trio ‘Dodgy’ who performed an amazing set live to an intimate audience.
They played a mixture of old and new songs, including 90’s classics such as ‘Staying out for the Summer’ and then finishing on their top 5 smash hit ‘ Good Enough.’
They warmed the crowd up by telling jokes – and the lead singer Nigel Clark laughed: “The only reason we split up was because I couldn’t stand living with these two” as he looked as his other two band-mates Mathew Priest and Andy Miller.
The group were called back by enthusiastic fans screaming ‘More More More’ and they returned on to the stage to perform two new songs, from their newest album ‘ Stand upright in a cool place’.
The festival will be continuing in various venues across Nantwich all week until October 12.
