Music, Mon 5 Dec 2016


After over 37 years in the music business – and with a credit list longer than both your arms – in 2009 Henry Priestman (having not sung since 1981!!) reinvented himself as a singer-songwriter, and released his debut solo CD *The Chronicles of Modern Life* to critical acclaim. Never one to rush things, five years later, in 2014, Proper Records released the eagerly awaited follow-up entitled *The Last Mad Surge of Youth*, which garnered Henry the best reviews he’s had in his many years of releasing albums.

Henry Priestman’s got form, including Yachts, It’s Immaterial, The Christians (writing all songs on their 1987 triple-platinum debut), sharing a mic and a number one single with Paul McCartney, and composing the title song for London West End musical *Dreamboats and Petticoats*. To say nothing of a roll call of sessions for fellow North West luminaries including Lightning Seeds, Johnny Marr, Ian McCulloch, Pete Wylie, Ian McNabb and Echo & The Bunnymen, plus vocals on Jools Holland/Tom Jones’ 2004 CD.

So come and enjoy a great night of songs and stories with Henry and his trusty sidekick Loved Up Les. And expect some audience participation!!
