Say Boo!

Top singer-songwriter to perform Kings Heath date.

One of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters, Boo Hewerdine has announced an extensive UK tour this autumn, taking in Kitchen Garden Cafe, Kings Heath on Monday, 18th November.

Boo will sing songs from his new album Before, released on 6th September, plus his impressive back catalogue. A naturally gifted raconteur, his gigs are always a total joy.

Before was recorded in the first weeks of 2019, with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljungren Boo’s only collaborator on the set. Whilst this is an album for the times (that echoes the darkness and confusion in Europe surrounding its pre-Brexit conception), Before is also a timely reminder of the power of simplicity, Hewerdine’s lyricism set to a subtle backdrop of vintage instrumentation.

Boo said: “This album feels like an opportunity to go back to the source. The way a song might spring into being almost fully formed. It will be really exciting to bring this organic collection of songs that have been recorded using a whole host of vintage instruments into a live setting. I’m looking forward to embarking on this run of solo shows and showing audiences what I’ve been working on.”

For over thirty years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band, The Bible, through his subsequent solo work and his long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader he has become something of a national treasure.

Since Swimming in Mercury was released in 2017, Boo has been writing, recording and touring with Eddi Reader, Chris Difford, Kris Drever and Emily Barker among others. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer.

Catch Boo live at Kitchen Garden Cafe, Birmingham on Monday, 18 November. For tickets visit
