Torchlight Acoustic Sessions: Boo Hewerdine

Torchlight-logoAcclaimed Ivor Novello Award-nominated English singer-songwriter Boo Hewerdine comes to Corby. Boo is well known as one of the greatest songwriter performers in the business, but incredibly, its been 7 years since Boo released his last studio album of original material God Bless The Pretty Things.

Brit Award-winning, former Fairground Attraction singer (and Scottish national treasure) Eddi Reader (MBE) is the perhaps the artist Boo is most regularly associated with, as a songwriter, musician and producer. Together they enjoyed international success with the (Hewerdine written) hit single Patience of Angels in 1995 and Boo also produced Reader’s Sings The Songs Of Robert Burns in 2003, an album now viewed as a folk classic.

Another great songwriter to call upon Boo Hewerdine is Chris Difford of Squeeze. Difford and Hewerdine’s latest project, 2016’s Fancy Pants involved co-writing and producing more than thirty songs He has also written material for major artists such as Sia, K.D Lang, Kris Drever (Lau), Duke Special and David McAlmont.
