Songwriters team-up for concert.
20 December 2018 at Newhampton Arts Centre, Wolverhampton.
Ivor Novello-nominated songwriter Boo Hewerdine and acclaimed Wolverhampton-born songwriter Dan Whitehouse are playing a special one-off concert in Wolverhampton on 20 December 2018.
Dan Whitehouse will debut new material from his forthcoming new album, produced by Boo, and songs from his recent catalogue. Signed to Reveal Records in 2017, Dan has toured and collaborated with label mates such as Brooklyn’s Joan As Police Woman, multi BBC Folk Award winner Kris Drever, Eddi Reader MBE, The Little Unsaid, and Boo Hewerdine, whilst performing his own sell-out headline shows.
Dan’s career path has been a slow burn success, establishing him as a much loved songwriter with each new release, and picking up five-star reviews for what’s been described by the media as “Black Country Soul”. He also recently won Best Folk/ Country Artist at the Birmingham Music Awards.
Singer-songwriter Boo Hewerdine first came to prominence in the late 1980s with his band The Bible, before going on to establish a successful career as a solo artist, songwriter and producer. Scotland’s Eddi Reader is the perhaps the artist Boo is most regularly associated with. Together they have enjoyed international success with hits including Patience Of Angels and her classic Sings The Songs Of Robert Burns album.
Currently touring with, and writing songs for, Squeeze’s Chris Difford, Boo’s most recent release is 2017’s autobiographical Swimming In Mercury.
For their Wolverhampton show, Dan and Boo will play individual sets as well as performing together.
Dan will also have a new CD available, featuring live versions of songs from his forthcoming album. The EP is available exclusively at shows, and limited to just 200 copies.
Says Dan: “I always look forward to playing my hometown especially in December – it’s a great time of year and caps off another rewarding 12 months of making new music and touring. I’m especially looking forward to playing with Boo, who is one of my favourite songwriters.”
