Blue Valentines: Tom Waits reworked
12 May 2019
An evening in the Colne River Room of music and anecdotes paying tribute to the talent and eccentricity of Tom Waits
He has produced the most amazing diversity of music: composing for music theatre, plays & films. Under the growl of his distinctive voice there often lurk sweet tunes and always haunting lyrics - he has been described as America's best lyricist since Johnny Mercer.
Covering songs from across his career we give a flavour of both his melancholy and his humour - and his range of styles from Folk to Jazz, from Blues to Rock.
Band: Steve Lodder (keyboard & arrangements); Wendy Lanchin (vocals); Gerry Hunt (sax & guitar); Andy Hamill (bass & harmonica); Tamas Teszary (drums)
Box Office: On the door ( doors open 7:30pm)
