Boo Hewerdine (music)

Singer songwriter Boo Hewerdine is the second guest for October at the Lamb Folk Club. He's busily touring right up until the end of the year and has many gigs with Eddi Reader, Brooks Williams or Darden Smith but the Lamb gig will be a solo affair.

A prolific composer, apparently Hewerdine began creating songs and offering them to local bands in his teens, before he had even learned to play an instrument. Now he is probably best known for his collaborations with Eddi Reader and her single Patience Of Angels. However a quick glance at his website reveals a wide range of artists for whom he has written including Jerry Douglas, Melanie Chisholm, Marti Pellow, k d lang, Suggs, and Paul Young (soon to be seen at Hailsham Pavilion - blog post coming on 23rd Oct!). I enjoyed hearing a few of his songs on the BBC4 Songwriter's Circle where he played alongside Justin Currie and Chris Difford.

Lamb Folk Club, 16th Oct, 20:00.
Tickets £7, available on the door.
