Everyone came together to sit in their gardens in Armour Road, maintaining social distancing, as Kev sang and played guitar.

One nearby resident said: "He often sings in pubs and clubs.

"We were sat in the garden and heard someone singing and went out the front to check.

"There are lots of people on their own drives - socially distancing - having a lovely afternoon listening to him.

"It's like our own festival."

Kev often sings in pubs, but since lockdown has been singing from his garden and streaming live from his campervan.

A neighbour added: "Yesterday was a real treat and brought everyone out of their houses."
