Ian Prowse & Amsterdam
FRIDAY 27TH MAY 2022
Event is over 18 only
Raised on the rallying cry of protest songs and influenced by the celtic sounds that make
Liverpool so unique, Ian Prowse is a singer/songwriter who is renowned for his incendiary
live shows and has cemented his cult following over twenty five years with indie bands Pele
and Amsterdam. Prowse charted with his song ‘Does This Train Stop on Merseyside?’, and
Radio 1 DJ, John Peel, was reduced to tears live on air each time he played the track. Irish
legend Christy Moore then adopted the song in 2009, making it the centrepiece of his
number 1 album, ‘Listen’.
Deeply impressed with Prowse’s 2019 album, Elvis Costello invited him to join every date of
his national 2020 tour, ‘Just Trust’, as his special guest. Elvis is not alone in recognising
Prowse’s ability to wow a live crowd as Prowse has previously rocked national tours with
The Pogues, Damien Dempsey, Del Amitri and The Wonderstuff.
