David Wyatt

The University of Leicester has had a relationship with the University of Gondar in Ethiopia since 1996, supporting developments in the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes and has contributed to local plans to enhance health care in the hospital and in the urban and rural communities.

The Leicester-Gondar Link is a registered charity (under its former name of Health Action Leicester for Ethiopia) and there is a fundraising gig at the O2 Academy Leicester, in our Percy Gee Building, on Sunday 11 December 2011.

Topping the bill is local star David Wyatt whose style of folk-influenced acoustic pop has been compatred to Nick Drake, Tim Buckley and Damien Rice. Wyatt has played the Summer Sundae and supported the likes of James Morrison and the Strawbs.

A full supporting line-up includes solid three-piece Guano (two thirds of whom were in the Lost Preachers); the rockin’ Lonesome Party Heroes; and introspective singer-songwriter Martha Bean.
