After the success of their Sunday afternoon “Songwriter Circle” gig on Valentine’s Day ‘16 , Henry Priestman, Pete Riley & Les Glover have decided to do it all again, at Liverpool’s intimate Studio 2 Parr St venue...they’ve even gone and given the gig a proper name: “Love is in the Air” – seems apt!

Expect a lot of banter, a load of laughs, and lush 3 part harmonies, as they join together to perform songs from Les Glover’s excellent “The Love Terrorist” album, Pete Riley’s years with Liverpool’s “Treehouse” & US big-hitter Edwin McCain (and his more recent duo albums with Amy Wadge), and Henry Priestman’s 38 year catalogue (Yachts, The Christians, and now solo)

What a treat,  following on from the fabulous event when Henry and Les blew our minds with their stunning songs and banter, we have not only Henry and Les but ALSO, songwriting genius Pete Riley coming to entertain us. With ‘lush harmonies’ excellent banter, much laughter and, oh yes, fab songs and musicianship, this evening is likely to be a sell out and will definitely be one of our famous ‘special ones’. Please don’t miss it. Book your tickets soon as they usually sell out in this format and it’ll be their last until 2017!
