Concert: Boz Hayward and the late Brian Tibby
- Sat 17 Nov 2012
- 7:00 pm
Chorlton based singer-songwriter Boz Hayward is delighted to announce the launch of his third album, ‘Edward Edwardly and the Marquis of Flixton’, a collaboration with the late Brian Tibby. Alongside a full, live band performance will be screened the album’s accompanying documentary, ‘The Marquis of Flixton’, a portrait of Brian which reveals the unusual story behind its conception.
Shortly before falling ill, ‘Big Brian’ who regularly opened the Chorlton Folk Club sent a series of handwritten letters to Boz which he accumulated over several weeks, containing amongst them a series of whimsical observations of local life in the music hall mould of Viv Stanshall and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. Inspired by the workings of Brian’s colourful and wonderfully eccentric imagination, ‘Edward Edwardly and the Marquis of Flixton’ is Boz’s witty response, a 13 track album which, named after one of the most vivid character sketches from the collection, sets each of these to his own unique blend of orchestral urban folk music.
Admission £5 on the door.
