The Seema TreeSteve Williams

July’s Sunday in the Bar is a  very special double bill, featuring Steve Williams of the Contenders in one of his first performances as a solo artist, together with an intimate set by Seema Kapila (rhythm guitar) and Richard Bailey (double bass) of the Seema Tree, consisting of mainly original songs with a sprinkling of chosen covers.

We all know the Contenders - Con Club regulars with their unique brand of good-time, beer-drinking blues and rock, but it'll be interesting to see and hear what Steve does on his own!

The Seema Tree is a four piece indie band (rhythm guitar/lead guitar/double bass and drums) who play original songs in their own eclectic manner - a cross-over blend of folk, blues, pop and rock. Union Music recently described their music as “original heartfelt indie with beautiful vocals and bittersweet lyrics”.
