Posted on: 10 Jan 2018

Celebrated British artists Chris Difford and Boo Hewerdine have scheduled a special show at Bristol's Folk House, coming together to showcase their combined songwriting prowess that has won them both such widespread acclaim over the years. Fans of Squeeze and The Bible won't want to miss out on this one - tickets are on sale now for the show on Friday 23rd March 2018.

Chris Difford originally found success with his much-loved band Squeeze in the 1970s and 80s.

As a founding member of one of London's best-loved bands, Squeeze, Chris Difford's contribution to British music is everlasting, having produced hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction and Labelled With Love. His passion for songwriting and innovation is still as strong as it was back in the early days of Squeeze, driving him to continue to write songs and tour regularly. 

 

Today, Difford's love for music has brought him together with another British great, acclaimed singer-songwriter Boo Hewerdine. Nominated for an Ivor Novello award and still writing music today having released an album in 2017, Hewerdine is in high demand as a writer, producer, live performer and teacher. Having made his name in the 80s as one of the founding members of The Bible, Hewerdine's sound compliments Difford brilliantly to form a truly special live act.

Boo Hewerdine is still an active songwriter, having released his latest album Swimming In Mercury in 2017.

The pair will be performing at Bristol Folk House for one night only on Friday 23rd March, with tickets on sale now starting at £16.50. A limited number of tickets will be available on the door priced at £18.50, but the organisers strongly recommend buying in advance to avoid disappointment.
