10/02/16 …Happy New Year (you what???!)

Can’t believe it’s Feb 10th, and I’m only just updating my website to wish you happy new year!
Suffice to say (sic) I had a pretty good Christmas, nice to have a bit of a lay-off and recharge the batteries before touring started again in Jan, easing in gently with a couple of gigs in Yorkshire…a folk club in Doncaster, and a village Hall in Hunmanby, both fabulous.
Then last weekend housegig season started, which sometimes means CAKE….but, honest, it’s not as tho’ it’s part of some “prima donna rider”, that means I INSIST on cake (and a white lily… Continue reading

29/09/15 update…”The Complete Renaissance Men Tour 2016″, plus housegig documentary

After a couple of months lay off, I’m itching to get back on the road later this week, kicking off the “Complete Renaissance Men Tour 2016” in Hull on Friday Oct 2nd…..20 concerts, going all the way through to December; in Liverpool/Merseyside, Manchester (supporting Fisherman’s Friends), Greater London (Uxbridge), The Midlands, East Yorkshire, the North East, etc etc…and 7 housegigs (3 in Wales alone) …all ticket details available on website…and a list of all gigs is in the column on the right.

23/08/15 update….”veritable media blitz”, etc

Just taking a bit of a break before the autumn onslaught of gigs, time to get a newsletter sorted.

This last month there’s been a veritable media blitz on me (well, I call two bits of Henry P media coverage, a “blitz”!).


Paul Skillen interviews HP on Bay TV’s Scouse Pop programme

Bay TV in Liverpool filmed an in-depth interview with me earlier in the year, and this was broadcast in late July as the opening one hour long programme in their “Scouse Pop” TV series.
Paul Skillen, the interviewer, really knew his stuff and put me… 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"

No, NOT a new album (just a "mock-up" and a play on words by Mr Tobbe Stuhre.."younger than yesterday", geddit?), but it might end up being on the cover of my next album, as I love the painting (done by Tobbe's 7 year old daughter). ...

Great couple of gigs this weekend: Stockton Heath on Friday, and last night a wonderful (tho' slightly bonkers) SOLD OUT night at The Greyhound Inn in Hinckley, my 4th gig in the town in 4 years.
Thanks to Nigel and Tim Payne for organising the gig (they just get better), to all who came down and sang their hearts out, and to Marian & Nigel for their kind hospitality (chilli and lashings of red wine), for putting Loved Up Les Glover & me up, and putting up with us.
