Clive Gregson

Clive returns to belatedly celebrate his 40th year in the business which was interrupted by a pandemic of all things! before finally hanging up his bus pass and retiring from solo touring.

A world-renowned singer, musician and record producer hailing from Manchester, he is one of the most respected songwriters of his generation, releasing a steady stream of stunning albums across four decades.

Confined to his home studio during the many lockdowns, Clive wrote, recorded and released eight new albums! He’ll be sharing many of these new songs tonight.

Melody Maker described his band Any Trouble, as the most exciting new rock 'n' roll group since The Pretenders. He formed the ground-breaking partnership with Christine Collister. Mary Chapin Carpenter named him as one of her favourite songwriters. And according to Guitar Player, he is one of the 1000 great guitarists.

“As fine a singer-songwriter as anyone has a right to expect…he does the lot.” The Independent

Clive says. “since this is by way of a farewell tour, my current show is along the lines of an "Evening With..." In the first set, I play a selection of new material from the eight CDs I released last year... this runs about 55 minutes. In the second set I play all the hits (!) and take audience requests. This set runs around an hour... plus the obligatory encore.”

Why not come along and catch Clive doing what he does best, one man, one guitar sharing great songs. See you there!
