TWM Live presents Wilswood Buoys first Headline show at Three Wise Monkeys Colchester on Friday 12st May.

Of the back of there recent tours with The Levellers and Frank Turner, the Willswood Buoys will be bringing their show to TWM in the form of a massive first Colchester Headline show.

Special guest include Armoured Man, Ady Johnson and Generation Feral, this show will be one not to miss.


"From Mersea Island in Essex, young new act, Wilswood Buoys are currently cutting their name into the UK underground scene. Mixing trad folk, with modern acoustic pop, the band have a really unique sound that’s also familiar and accessible.

Formed in summer 2017, starting out as just a couple of mates having a jam things quickly escalated into writing music. Both of the buoys had a completely different upbringing in terms of musical styles and this led them down a path of intertwining many genres into one, to form a raw and fresh alt/folk island sound, with catchy riffs and big choruses."


Armoured Man are a multi-instrumental folk duo from the flatlands of East Anglia. Rooted in the storytelling traditions of folk songwriting, Armoured Man’s sound fuses English and Celtic folk with elements of alternative rock and the nervy energy of post-hardcore.

Formed in 2015 in Castelló de la Plana, on the Valencian plain, Adam Thomas and Lewis Berale initially performed as Natives, earning a dedicated local following thanks to their intense, visceral live shows.


Suffolk born, Colchester based antique furniture restorer/musician Ady Johnson, had both livelihoods threatened after he severed two tendons in a finger with a chisel. Thankfully he made a full recovery. Having already had success with Colchester band FuzzFace and gaining an Honours Degree in classical guitar performance, Ady decided to down tools and focus on music.


Generation Feral is on first with looping acoustic melodies, a voice that will echo throughout the venue for sure.
