Connor Lawlor is a 28-year-old singer/songwriter from North Yorkshire, currently based in Cheshire. He began performing gigs around his hometown at the age of 16 after a few years of working his way around the local open mic scene. After building a strong reputation in and around Yorkshire he began performing for a living at the age of 18 and has since been involved in over 2000 events. Ranging from public gigs and private functions to weddings and competitions all over the country, including support slots for acts such as Olly Murs, McFly, McBusted and Jessie J. He is currently travelling all over the North of England and playing upwards of 200 gigs per year. Connor mainly works as a cover artist performing modern acoustic renditions of all your favourite songs, ranging from the 50’s through to the modern day, with a repertoire containing a little something for everyone. He will work with you to create a setlist tailored to your tastes and is more than happy to learn any song requests you may have. On the contrary, if you are happy to leave song selection to him, 10 years of experience has enabled Connor to be great at reading a room and adjusting his setlist accordingly. From Pop and Indie music to Country & Western and Rock N’ Roll. From Elvis, Kenny Rogers, and Stevie Wonder, to Oasis, Paolo Nutini and Taylor Swift! Plus, TONS more. Last-minute requests? FIRE AWAY! As long as he has heard the song before, he will likely give it a go right there and then. Connor is a likeable, cheeky character who performs with an acoustic guitar and a stomp pedal meaning that he can provide both a chilled out, mellow atmosphere, great for setting the tone with some acoustic music during your afternoon arrival drinks, but can also get people up dancing and singing, providing a burst of energy, and bringing life to any party.

AMAZING! Connor first played for us back in March 2023 and has since become our resident in-house musician! We are constantly blown away by his ability to take control of the room and keep everyone's attention on him. He always has people up dancing and shouting for more come the end of the night and he has an amazing ability to read a room and adjust his setlist accordingly... Plus, he sounds INCREDIBLE! We all love him here at Popcorn and we cannot recommend him enough! 10/10!

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will always try my best to be flexible to help ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event just let me know and 9 times out of 10 there will be zero issue.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a very popular request and I offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service using my PA system after the final set until the venue closes, I will provide this for an additional cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually need around 15-30 minutes to set up. It's super simple! Saying that though, I do like to arrive around an hour before start time to ensure everything is ready and in working order.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

The set lists I use are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time so I usually suggest that you choose a handful of your favourites and then let me know if there are any DO NOT PLAY'S! Saying that, if you have your heart set on picking the whole setlist, I am more than happy to do so.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I provide everything that I need for the evening. I will simply need a plug socket or 2.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! I am more than happy to learn any songs that you may want playing for your event. Just give me a heads up and it shall be sorted for you.
