Saturday 19th May Canopy Theatre, Hungate Church Beccles
Acclaimed singer/songwriters Clive Gregson & Liz Simcock first toured together in 2015 in a series of shows performing songs from the Clive Gregson & Christine Collister back catalogue. The tour was a resounding success, so Clive and Liz decided to keep the partnership going and in October 2017 they released Underwater Dancing, a CD of 14 brand new Clive Gregson songs
They undertook a very successful and well received tour in support of the album in autumn 2017 and will be embarking on the next leg of that tour in early summer 2018, bringing them to the Canopy Theatre at Hungate Church Beccles on Saturday 19th May at 8.00 p.m.

The new duo show is a mixture of Gregson & Collister classics (from their 5 critically well received albums released between 1985 & 1992) plus songs from the new CD.
Since 1992 Clive has continued to have a very successful career, touring and recording with Richard Thompson, Nanci Griffith and Eddi Reader (among many others) and recording 13 solo albums. He received lots of requests to revisit the Greson/Collister material and when he met Liz in 2015 he found the perfect singer to help him do so.
Liz, a highly successful singer/songwriter in her own right, was delighted to be asked, saying "I've always been a fan of Gregson & Collister; they were what got me into writing songs and I think it is a real privilege to be doing this."
Tickets for the show are available to personal callers at Beccles Books, Exchange Square Beccles, at the Wine Vaults Bar & Restaurant in Blyburgate, Beccles and online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/448907 with any remaining tickets on the door. Doors open at 7.00 p.m.
