Boo Hewerdine – Live to your Living Room
May 8 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM CDT£15
For over 30 years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band, The Bible through to his subsequent solo work and long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader he has become something of a national treasure. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer.
His latest album ‘Before’ was recorded with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljungren, Boo’s only collaborator on the set. Whilst this is an album for the times (that echoes the darkness and confusion in Europe surrounding it’s pre-Brexit conception) ‘Before’ is also a timely reminder of the power of simplicity, Hewerdine’s lyricism set to a subtle backdrop of vintage instrumentation.
On this tour he will be singing songs from his new album and his extensive back catalogue. A naturally gifted raconteur his gigs are always a total joy.
This event will be streamed live on Zoom with high-quality sound from our remote sound engineers. You’ll be able to applaud and even ask Boo questions in the Q&A.
