10.07.15 Update…60’s the new 40, “Old” T shirts, and Renaissance men!

Been a wonderful month or so…firstly I have to thank everyone who sent their best wishes to me (literally hundreds of people, mostly via Facebook) for my 60th birthday in June…made an old man very happy….I’m actually appearing even older at the mo, as I’m still having to sit on a stool at gigs, being not fully recovered from my hernia op earlier in the year. Don’t worry, even seated I can still give it loads, especially with trusty Loved up Les at my side, and I’ll be back standing up and stomping before you know it!

17/05/15 update…Hernia, Les’ album and Paella!

Been a bit tardy updating the website…mitigating circumstances, m’lud, had a hernia op 3 weeks ago (which seems to have all gone fine) and have kept on meaning to get round to doing a new blog/news update here…and whilst I’ve been putting up my regular little snippets on Facebook, I’m aware some people aren’t on FB (or hate it!), so I endeavour to put something up here every month or so..so here goes:

New DVD is finally out….thanks to everyone who came to the 2 wonderful launch gigs at the weekend, first in Settle (where the DVD was filmed in 2014) and then in Cherry Burton, near Beverley…there was even a nice review of the 2nd gig on the Afterword website (formerly Word magazine)  http://theafterword.co.uk/henry-priestman/

Signed copies available

The DVD features 20 tracks from my 37 year career, so, right back to my first band Yachts, via a few of the hits I wrote for The Christians, and lashings of stuff from my 2 solo albums.    … Continue reading

There's no greater compliment that can be paid to the album [The Last Mad Surge of Youth] than to say quite plainly that it's a really enjoyable album, one for repeated listening and guaranteed to touch a nerve of some sort for fans of a certain age who will enjoy the ponderings and contemplations"

Just like buses, nothing for years, then suddenly three pieces in the Liverpool Echo News in a week...cheers Paddy Shennan; no payola was involved, but I did sign his Yachts, Itsy and Christians albums! (hey, I'll be watching ebay!)

For anyone outside the Liverpool area (or for those who missed it), they've now put up on youtube the "Scouse Pop" programme that was broadcast last week on Bay TV Liverpool. It was an in-depth look at my (ahem) "career" (interview by Paul Skillen), with 4 songs from various stages played by myself and Loved Up Les...and even I was OK to come out from behind the sofa to watch it!

Fabulous gig last night in the wine vaults below The Vaults Micropub, Devizes..basically like The Cavern, only much smaller and we squoze (is there such a word? :-) ) 35 people into the place.
Thanks to 15 year old Lottie Diddams, who sang beautifully on "Valentine Song", and added harmonies on other tunes...also ukulele orchestra The Ukey D'Ukes who somehow fitted on the postage stamp of a stage with us for "True Believer"...
Special thanks to Malcy Shipp who organised this gig only a week ago, merely to tie in with the fact that I was passing.
[I love this pic that Karen Davis took]
