Henry Priestman and Les Glover

Grateful Fred is chuffed to bits to be welcoming back for the 5th time our friends “Henry Priestman & Les Glover” who are possibly the most popular performers to have ever graced the Grateful Fred stage.

“Fredheads” who have seen Henry and Les perform before will already know what a treat is in-store but if you havent’ been lucky enough to have experienced their great songs, humour and repartee then you are in for a real treat.

After over 38 years in the music business – and with a credit list longer than both your arms – in 2009 Henry Priestman (having not sung since 1981!!) reinvented himself as a singer-songwriter, and released his debut solo CD “The Chronicles of Modern Life” (on legendary Island Records) to critical acclaim. Never one to rush things, 5 years later, in Feb 2014 Proper Records released the eagerly awaited follow-up entitled “The Last Mad Surge of Youth”, which garnered Henry the best reviews he’s had in his many years of releasing albums.

Les Glover, Henry’s sparring partner, has, over the last 39 years, been performing, either as a solo artist or as part of a band, both in the UK and across Europe, and has several TV and radio appearances (including BBC Cambridge, Coventry, Hull, Merseyside and Stoke) to his credit. He has played and sung with a variety of top acts, including Henry Priestman (The Christians /It’s Immaterial/Yachts), Graham Gouldman (10cc), Pete Riley (Edwin McCain/Amy Wadge), John Reilly (Boy on a Dolphin), JJ Gilmour (The Silencers), Lotte Mullan, and Micaela Haslam (BBC singers/Synergy Vocals) and Gary Barlow, to name but a few. He has also supported artists such as Deaf School, Fisherman’s Friends, Nick Harper, Ian McNabb, Martin Stephenson and Wreckless Eric. He has a healthy love of all styles of music, from Hank Williams to Motorhead and an unhealthy love of 70’s Pop.

We can promise you a truly entertaining evening with Henry and Les that you wont’ want to miss!

Tennessee Waltz

Tennessee Waltz is an acoustic country music duo from the Wirral playing an infectious mix of original, classic and contemporary rockers and thoughtful intimate ballads. With their trademark vocal harmonies Jimmy Rae (vocals and guitar) and Sarah-Lou Fletcher (vocals, mandolin and percussion) have delighted us at Grateful Freds on several occasions in recent months, both as a duo (Tennessee Waltz) and a trio (Jimmy Rae & the Moonshine Girls). Drawing on original material from Jimmy’s two well received albums to date, Tennessee Waltz are guaranteed to warm your heart and set your toes a-tapping.
