Home Service (music)

Legend of the British folk scene John Tams will be visiting Hailsham Pavilion 'for one night only' fronting Home Service. The band have temporarily reunited following the exciting discovery last year of recordings of their music at the 1986 Cambridge Folk Festival and are touring to promote the live album. Expect to hear once-again-relevant anthems on the inequalities of Thatcherite Britain from the winners of the Radio 2 Best Live Act award.

The eight man band is John Tams, Graeme Taylor, Steve King, Jon Davie, Michael Gregory, Paul Archibald, Roger Williams and Andy Findon. Also, due to medical reasons, Joe Topping will take the lead vocalist role although Tams will still provide his customary introductions to the songs.

A spot of trivia: Amongst all his other achievements throughout his 40 year career, John Tams wrote the music for the stage show, War Horse, although I doubt he will be bringing any horses onto the Pavilion stage!

Hailsham Pavilion, Friday 25th May, 19:30, £22.50.
