Boo Hewerdine

and the Phoenix Chorale.

 

For over 30 years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band, The Bible, through his subsequent solo work and his long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader he has become something of a national treasure. 

Since Swimming in Mercury was released in 2017, Boo has been writing, recording and touring with Eddi Reader, Chris Difford, Kris Drever and Emily Barker among others. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer. This Autumn he will be undertaking an extensive tour, singing songs from his new album ‘Before’ and his extensive back catalogue. 

A naturally gifted raconteur his gigs are always a total joy.

The Phoenix Chorale will back Boo during some of his songs with choral arrangements by Stapleford Granary's Artist-in-Residence Kevin Flanagen.

New singers aged 21 and under are invited to join the Phoenix Chorale for this event with a rehearsal on 20 June 14.00 -17.00 and during the afternoon on 27 June at Stapleford Granary.
