The enigmatic Ginger Wildheart has had a musical career of ups and downs. Starting life as guitarist in hair rock band The Quireboys, the South Shields musician has collaborated with everyone from American alternative rock stars Courtney Love and Dave Navarro, to the late, great Mark E Smith. Ginger’s greatest success came with pop punk outfit The Wildhearts who claimed thirteen top 40 hits in their time. Sandwiched between a serious of acoustic dates opening for The Levellers and a 6 date Wildhearts reunion tour with Terrovision and Reef, March sees Ginger performing at much more intimate venues as part of his Ghost in Tanglewood tour.
You can catch Ginger Wildheart at Leicester’s Firebug, 4th March. Tickets are priced at £16.50.
