Great fun at the James Burton Festival Weekend last night, in New Brighton (James Burton, as in Elvis Presley's guitarist). Also appearing were Glen D Hardin from The Crickets, The Merseybeats and a host of other artists, mostly playing fabulous versions of 50's/60's songs in immaculate shirts and waist-coats.
So it was with a certain amount of trepidation that Les Glover & I shuffled onstage, in our scruffy garb, for our short (20 mins!) set of songs nobody had ever heard before...hey, we needn't have worried, the audience seemed to like us, and we ended up returning to the stage for the grand finale version of "You'll Never Walk Alone", all above bands performing, and Les and I doing backing vocals round a mic with compere Billy Butler.
Great night.
Pic: special thanks to The Passionettes (Lousie & Dionne), and Dave Goldberg of The Merseybeats, for joining us on a couple of songs in our set...we only met them at sound check!

Always nice, when you're staying over after a housegig, that they put an obvious sign on your room door, to stop you stumbling, half-asleep, into the wrong bedroom after a 3am visit to the loo! ... See MoreSee Less

This is where it all started: 1966, 11 year old me on drums (still got that kit in the loft), with brother Will (right), and John Lewis (left)...probably attempting "Satisfaction", or "Walkin' The Dog"! ... See MoreSee Less

Album cover for The Last mad Surge of Youth by Henry Priestman

“…compares favourably to Ray Davies. These are heart-warming self-assured songs from a man confidently declaring that he’s not done yet”

8/10

Uncut Magazine

“Clever crafted songwriting…full of proper tunes & grown-up words…a clever, wily,  literate writer”

****

R2 Magazine

“A lovingly crafted album… his fourth act might be his best”

****

Classic Pop Magazine

It’s all bound by Priestman’s songwriterly craft: some things age cannot whither”
