Henry Priestman and friends - 5 Decades of Song 
(“5 Decades, 4 chords!” Les Glover) 

It’s an incredible 41 years (and 5 decades) since Stiff Records released the classic cult single “Suffice To Say” by Liverpool band Yachts, with Henry Priestman as writer and keyboard player.

Since then Henry has worked in so many different capacities within the music biz: founder member of It’s Immaterial and, following that, The Christians (for whom he wrote all the songs on their 1987 triple-platinum debut), a veritable roll-call of sessions for fellow North West luminaries including Lightening Seeds, Johnny Marr, Ian McCulloch, Pete Wylie/Mighty Wah, Ian McNabb, and Echo & The Bunnymen....and he even shared a mic and a #1 single with Paul McCartney!

Then there’s his production/co-writing work (with/for such diverse characters as Graham Gouldman, Mark Owen, Jason Donovan, Desmond Child, Lamont Dozier, Suggs, & Cerys Matthews) to say nothing of his film and TV work (BBC Natural World, ads, and Xbox James Bond game etc). 
 
But it’s in the last 10 years that he’s really managed to find complete artistic satisfaction (and what fun he’s had too), nowadays his work being mainly taken up with writing/recording his own albums (3 in total so far), and touring the UK, with his partner-in-crime Les Glover, mixing ramshackle chaos & tear-jerking poignancy in equal measures.

At this gig he’ll be joined of course by Les, plus his friends Nick Silver, Sarah Wright and Jo Bushell, and they’ll be playing excerpts (old and new) from Henry’s “5 decades of song.
