Henry Priestman

Here’s the first of 3 songs Les & I recorded for The Narrowboat Sessions the other week. It’s off our latest album, dedicated to those affected by the disappearing fishing trade, especially relevant to my birthplace of Hull.
Thanks Mark Holdsworth for filming/recording this.

The Narrowboat Sessions
Our skipper and Henry Priestman have been friends for many years so it was a double bonus when he brought another old friend with him, the wonderful Les Glover. Henry and Les are probably the two busiest jobbing troubadours in the business visiting schools and social organisations during the day and gigging all around the country nearly every evening. These two lovely fellas really are a pleasure to work with as it really is a laugh a minute, even when they're trying to be sensible. Just have a listen to them singing this lovely Priestman/Herman song 'The Ghosts of a Thousand Fishermen' to appreciate just how good these guys are!

Henry Priestman

Hey, I’m on Top of the Pops tonight on BBC4, (from 1986, probably unrecognisable with hair and no cap), miming harmonica on It’s Immaterial’s ‘Driving Away from Home’.
As you’ll see by line-up, we were very much the Northern upstarts; all I remember is them Aha boys being strapping lads, and George Michael nodding a shy ‘hello’.

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”
