I am DREADFUL at admin (aren't all us musicians?), so it's with a happy heart that I announce that ALL my current 2019 gigs are now up on my website, all 37 of them, including (incredibly) 23 housegigs...we're running out of housegig Saturdays now (only ones left are: one in Feb, one in Aug, one in Nov), so hurry and get in touch if you're interested.
Meantime, upcoming in next few months, public gigs in Retford (Church Hall), Maghull (Folk Club), Liverpool (Parr St), and Hull (Kardomah).

Last night, return housegig, one year on, at "The Winchester", aka Anya & Mark Mark Evans' Birkenhead front room, which they've done out like a proper pub: bar, booze, dart board, 'n' all.
Made even more special as it was a surprise birthday party for Mark, who, despite it being booked nearly a year ago, knew NOTHING about it until he walked through the front door and was suddenly confronted by his friends from all over UK, and me and Les Glover singing Happy Birthday.
Well done Anya, don't know how you managed it! 🙂 x
PS Nice T-Shirt, Mark 😉

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”
