Paul Carrack (music)

An evening of great music will be had at the Congress Theatre in November when Paul Carrack makes his debut appearance at the venue. Even if you don't immediately recognise his name, you will probably have heard his songs at some point as he was previously a member of both Mike & The Mechanics and Squeeze.

Paul Carrack has been making and recording music for over forty years and his latest album is entitled Good Feeling. The album includes songs written with both former Squeeze musician Chris Difford and also the wonderful Charlie Dore who we were lucky enough to catch at Hailsham Pavilion a couple of years ago. Born in Sheffield, his musical passion has always been soul music, especially Motown, and this influence is very evident in his work. He cites David Ruffin and Stevie Wonder as his favourite singers. The Ace song, How Long, from the mid 1970s was written and sung by Carrack, as was the 1989 hit for Mike & The Mechanics, The Living Years, which is still very popular with audiences and a part of Paul's current set list.

Congress Theatre, Sun 11th Nov, 19:30.
Tickets £27.50, £37.50 premium seats, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person at the Box Office or the Tourist Information Office.
