The latest Friday night live music offering for The Steamer, in Fleetwood, comes from Freebird.
The four-piece covers band travels across the county from Clitheroe for their first gig at the Queens Terrace venue
That said, it will be Freebird’s sixth appearance in the town, the band having made their Fleetwood debut in November 2015.
Since their formation in 2001, Freebird have earned a reputation for their performance of classic rock covers, especially, as their name suggests, the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd, who feature strongly in the setlist.
The band comprises Matt Howarth on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Barry Buchanan on drums, Derek Wellock on bass and Steve Lawton on lead guitar and backing vocals.
