A FOLK singer with avid listeners worldwide will be launching his second album in Hitchin this month.
Stuart O'Connor, 27, who has been writing and producing his own music for the past 10 years, will be releasing his new album A Distance From Here, at Club 85 on Sunday, March 23, at 9pm.
The former university librarian has given up work to tour in the UK and abroad.
His UK tour which begins two days after the Hitchin gig will take him to 50 venues but he will return to Hitchin for Rhythms of the World on July 12 and 13.
