Widely considered one of the most charismatic performers on stage, Steve Harley continues to play to sold-out venues across the UK and Europe.
The acoustic sets for 2020 will include songs from his new all-acoustic CD UNCOVERED, plus a selection from the vast and eclectic Harley Songbook. Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Sebastian and the legendary Make Me Smile will all be re-produced in the unique acoustic style. Steve will be supported by long-standing violinist/guitarist Barry Wickens, Oli Hayhurst on double bass, with Dave Delarre on lead guitar.
For Steve, life on the road is more than just a job: it is almost his life’s blood; and with the February 2020 release of UNCOVERED, the original Cockney Rebel shows no sign of slowing down. UNCOVERED includes a re-recording of Steve’s own highly-esteemed song Love, Compared With You with a newly composed third verse, plus his thus-far unrecorded Only You, and nine other songs he’s always wanted to perform.
Steve received a Lifetime Achievement Award for Acoustic Music from the Acoustic Festival of Britain in 2018. He has been described as “A consummate performer at the top of his game,” and this show will bear that out.
“It was an intimate night in the presence of a great musician. An individual whose passion for live performance and perfection (it shows in his face) remains undiminished. ”Close-Up Culture
