Friday 12th April
7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
We all at times look back at our past to a specific event such as a new relationship, or the starting point of our career and cherish those memories. How though do we view those times?
Acclaimed Ivor Novello Award nominated English singer-songwriter Boo Hewerdine’s album Swimming in Mercury gives us a personal insight as he takes us on that journey back in time. It’s a trip furnished with a glisten and a glint in his eye as he applies style and shapes to his autobiographical memories. Hewerdine revisits and recreates music in a manner that, put simply, a band starting out just couldn’t afford.
In his own words: “the new album was recorded in the spirit of the first four track recording I ever did; but instead of a chunky cassette deck we were able to use Chris Pepper’s Cambridge studio. It was an incredibly enjoyable and creative way to work. Often I would write a song in the morning and by the end of the day we would have another track done”.
This event is seated, and seats are unreserved.
