Henry Priestman

#ArchiveSunday In 1992 I was in France promoting The Christians’ 3rd album. I did a Paris radio show, a bit like Radio 4’s ‘Start the Week’, quite in depth, guests round a table (much of it in French!).
The only other English speaking guest was none other than Joan Baez, so we ‘bonded’(!) over that and the fact that we were both musicians, & both brought up as Quakers. I sang along with her on an old standard (‘Blowing in the Wind’ perhaps?) and at the end of the show she kindly handed me her new CD (with phone number on) and said ‘Do give me a call if you’re ever in LA’!! I love the idea of me ringing and saying ‘hi Joanie, it’s me, Henry...you remember, from the Paris interview’😉
What a lovely person.

Some great looking (and pretty good sounding) footage of our ‘Not in my Name’ set closer from last Sunday’s performance at Folk on the Farm festival...what a wonderful festival it was!
[Big thanks to Les, Lynne, Nick & Sarah...and Simmo for the vid]

Apparently I looked like a kid at Xmas opening the package that contained these vinyl beauties today...some ‘dodgy prog’, my favourite Little Feat album, plus the best album in the history of recorded sound ‘Marquee Moon’.
This swapping of my unwanted LPs with Nick Halliwell​​ is working a treat!

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”
