Band to play in front of home crowd

A Bridlington band is coming home to Bridlington to perform at the Bridlington Spa in April.

Seafret is made up of the acoustic double act Jack Sedman (vocals) and Harry Draper (guitar) who formed after meeting at an open mic night.

Seafret’s material is writing about life as it evolves around them, the two have a rare observational eye – though young, the world is not going to pass them by.

Retaining their love of open mics, the duo appears determined to win over fans one step at a time.

“You get up and if you win one person over, that’s one more person,” Jack explains. “It’s all part of it.”

Seafret’s youth allows them to bring something fresh, something unheard. There are shades of The Lumineers, of Hozier’s heartbroken delta strum on upcoming EP ‘Give Me Something’.

The pair now live and work in London, though they do not forget their northern roots and look forward to returning to Bridlington.

The concert is to take place on 5 April at 7.30pm with tickets priced at £6 in advance or £7 on the door.

The duo are inspired by what they see around them – and what they miss most about being divorced from the North: “It’s the sea. I miss the sea,” Harry says. “When you live there you take it for granted. I never missed it before. You don’t realise what it does to you when you’re there.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday 6 January 2015 at 10am and can be purchased by calling the box office on 01262 678258 or online at
