SINGER SONGWRITER Swan Levitt will play his first headline show at Strings in Newport this Friday (January 25).

It will be something of a homecoming gig for the folk singer, who has recently returned to the Island after supporting Icelandic musician Axel Flovent on tour in Europe.

It has been a busy couple of years for the Isle of Wight musician, who has played a major label support tour, a live session on Dermot O'Leary's BBC Radio 2 show, Camp Bestival and Sofar Sounds shows in London.

Tickets are available here.
