Fire and Rain & American Pie
Saturday 1st July 7pm – 9:30pm
A heart-warming, musical homage to the great U.S. singer-songwriters of the late 60’s and early 70’s, featuring beautiful timeless songs from James Taylor, Carole King, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Don Mclean, Bread, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America, The Byrds, Mamas and Papas and Carly Simon.
An excellent 5-piece band will bring you classic songs from this golden era including ‘You’ve got a Friend’, ‘You make me feel like a natural woman’, ‘American Pie’, ‘Fire and Rain’, ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, ‘River’, ‘Starry Starry Night’, ‘Horse with no Name’, ’Mrs Robinson’, ‘Make it with you’, ‘Feelin’ Groovy’, ‘California Dreaming’, ‘You’re So Vain’, ‘Woodstock’ and many more!
The show has a relaxed acoustic style, matching the spirit of this era, when many of these artists were neighbours in the Laurel Canyon suburb of L.A.
With an intimate nostalgic narrative including images from that time, the show is sometimes poignant, sometimes amusing, always delightful.
Produced and Hosted by Singer-guitarist Paul Wheeler (TV Director, ‘Live at the Apollo’) with Sophie Langham (West-End actress-singer and formerly EastEnders).
