from Manchester via Nashville
one night only !
monday 31 may 2004
Described by Rolling Stone as "the state of the art in British folk-rock" and in
The Times as "One of Britain's most cultured singer-songwriters."
Manchester born Clive currently lives in Nashville where
when he is not falling off his roof, he is much in demand as a sonwriter and session player. He began his carrer in the 1980's with highly acclaimed band "Any Trouble"
and after the band split up he enjoyed a long and successfull collaboration with
Christine Collister before becoming a member of the Richard Thompson band.
Clive along with Peter Case was one of the reasons why I started doing concerts in the first place (look what a musical feast that led to). In my opinion he's one of the all time great songwriters whose work is brilliantly crafted, moving and intelligent. He's also an incredible guitarist who keeps excellent company... Richard Thompson, Boo Hewerdine & Eddi Reader .Oh... and he's a great raconteur.... who can bring two types of tears to your eyes.
