Boo Hewerdine + Support
Saturday Jul 13, 2019 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
Catch one of the UK’s finest songwriters when Eddi Reader collaborator Boo Hewerdine plays the Town Hall, Wadebridge, Sat 13th July, as a fundraiser for the Cornwall Folk Festival.
He will also run a songwriting workshop while in North Cornwall.
A prolific composer, he was the creative force behind seminal 80s band The Bible. He’s written for artists including KD Lang, Paul Young and Natalie Imbruglia.
His hits for the former Fairground Attraction singer include the Novello-nominated ‘Patience of Angels’, ‘Bell, Book and Candle’ and ‘Dragonflies’, plus many co-authored with Reader.
He’s recently duetted with Squeeze’s Chris Difford and Kris Drever of Scottish folk band Lau.
A naturally gifted raconteur, his gigs are always a total joy. Look out for songs from his 2019 album ‘Before’ as well as from back catalogue of pure magic.
His music “may draw you in … but it is also his dry humour, his self- depreciation and anecdotes of a profession well lived that catches the attention of his live sets.” Liverpool Sound and Vision
