SATURDAY 24TH MAY 2014
8.00pm - 11.00pm
Really delighted that we have Boo Hewerdine performing at Woodend this Saturday as part of his - My Name In The Brackets - UK Tour,
Doors at 8.00
Boo is universally acclaimed as one of Britain's finest songwriters, with over one thousand published songs already recorded. My Name In The Brackets is a new recording that's subject is song or rather, the writing credit that follows the title of each song.
A diverse array of artists including KD Lang, Heidi Talbot, Kris Drever (Lau), Chris Difford (Squeeze), Suggs (Madness) and Kim Richey have recorded his songs but Boo's most popular work has been as collaborator, producer, songwriter and guitarist for Eddi Reader (for over two decades).
Boo Hewerdine met Eddi Reader after his band The Bible split in the late eighties and ever since Boo Hewerdine and Eddi Reader (formerly of Fairground Attraction) have been on an incredible musical adventure. In 2014 Eddi Reader released her tenth studio album (Vagabond) and the Boo produced classic Songs Of Robert Burns was re-mastered and re-issued.
He says "I'm looking forward to singing songs from throughout my writing career and also new songs from “My Name In The Brackets”, this will be the first opportunity for fans to hear the new material and buy a CD".
This will be a night of excellent music and tickets moving for this one so, if you wish to come please don’t shilly shally and get in touch!!
