LEGENDARY singer/ songwriter Henry Priestman is performing live at The Rachel Fowler Centre this Saturday, 13th April, hosted by new high street micro-pub, The Hiding Place.
After over 40 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”.
Henry is a man who’s seen the music world explode from punk (his band Yachts supported the Sex Pistols in ’77, and The Who on European Tour in ‘79) via pop (three million albums with The Christians; a top five single for Mark Owen) through to the digital age (soundtracks for James Bond/Xbox, BBC’s Wildlife on One, Natural World), writing/production duties with the likes of singer/songwriters Amy Wadge, Lotte Mullan and 10cc’s Graham Gouldman (3 co-writes with Graham on his latest “Love and Work” album) and still has something worth singing about.
The veteran performer will be live from 7.30pm until 10pm. Tickets are £10 and available from the bar in The Hiding Place in the High Street or by calling 07917 272482
