Manchester Gospel/Soul duo Canter Semper will headline a hometown show at Manchester Academy 3.

The duo are centre around the harmonies of vocalists Sarah Adams  (who also leads the Manchester Survivors Choir) and Emma Brewin.  Having formed in 2013, Canter Semper has developed their own brand of Vintage Gospel, weaving harmony driven melodies and lyricism into jazz-tinged soundscapes, they have drawn comparisons with the likes of The Staves and Smoke Fairies.
