‘One of the country’s most consistently admired songwriters’ (Folk Radio UK), Boo Hewerdine has announced his first new studio album in eight years. Swimming In Mercury is released on 28 April 2017. And for this concert, in a rare full-band line up, joining Boo is Chris Pepper (drums), Chris Bradbury (guitar & keys) and Mark Ellis (bass).
In the years since his last studio album of original material God Bless The Pretty Things Hewerdine has not been inactive, far from it, the period has been the most productive of his career. Boo wrote Radio Ballads for the BBC’s Olympic and recent Child Migration series. He formed the duo State Of The Union with American guitarist Brooks Williams and has written lyrics and played on over 30 new recordings by and with other artists during the period including the acclaimed 2014 album Vagabond and 2015 EP Back The Dogs with Eddi Reader, as well as Last Man Standing with Kris Drever of Lau.
If all this wasn’t enough he also found time to release a Best Of compilation My Name In Brackets which was followed with an album of lost recordings found in a box! Open received five star reviews and was number 5 in The Telegraph Albums of The Year 2015.
