On May 4th 2013 Henry Priestman and Les Glover played their first ever gig together. Henry had been doing mainly solo concerts for a year or so, but felt it would be good to get someone in for “the odd prestige gig” to help broaden the sound a bit. He spotted Les at a local gig, and thought “he seems good”. This first gig together was a definite ordeal of fire: a house-gig for the 75th birthday of a friend’s father, it was soon obvious than 98% of the people attending had no interest whatsoever in “the turn” onstage. Hen & Les battled on regardless, laughing in the face of adversity, and in doing so, they discovered that onstage there was a certain chemistry between them, that would become infectious to the audience (albeit not this particular one!). Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength, and the “odd prestige gig” has turned into over 500 gigs together, and nary a rock-star tantrum or a bad word between them in 10 hectic years. Bonded by a love of similar kinds of music, they’ve created an unpretentious live act of genuine warmth, gentle humour, occasional chaos and half decent songs, an act that seems to be appreciated by their many repeat audiences.
Don’t miss this one-off celebratory gig.
