Following the success of his most recent album, Woodland Echoes, and tours of the UK and Japan, join us this April for an intimate evening with singer-songwriter Nick Heywood playing tracks from his 35 year career.
Woodland Echoes is Nick Heyward’s ninth album, tenth if you include Pelican West, the pop-funk masterpiece he released in 1982 with his first band, Haircut 100.
35 years later, Nick is looking out at his world, and likes what he sees.
“I’m glad I’m alive, I’m glad that I’m writing and putting records out,” he says.
“It’s great now because it’s easy to be independent.”
Haircut 100 burnt briefly and brightly – the ultimate group of pals who, within a year, had hit the big time.
It finished as quickly as it began; the band parted ways and Nick’s first solo album, North Of A Miracle, was released in September 1983.
Audiences will be treated to hits from across his entire career from Haircut 100 to today, such as ‘Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)’, ‘Love Plus One’, ‘Fantastic Day’, ‘Kite’ and ‘Whistle Down the Wind’. Peppered in the set will be album tracks, b-sides and maybe even a teaser from his next album.
