The Steve Harley Acoustic Band UK Tour is coming to The Lowry on Sunday 15th May

Steve Harley, considered one of the most charismatic artists on the scene, continues to play at sold-out venues in the UK and Europe.

For Steve, life on the road is more than just a job: it’s almost the blood of his life.

And with the February 2020 release of the all-acoustic CD, “UNCOVERED”, the original Cockney Rebel shows no signs of slowing down.

The Acoustic Band for 2022 will find Steve backed by longtime violinist / guitarist Barry Wickens and Oli Heyhurst on double bass with Dave Delarre on lead acoustic guitar.

Steve has been playing live shows around the world for over 45 years, and the excitement of yet another night somewhere else for a different audience has not diminished at all.

“We have real adventures on tour,” Steve says. “I have seen the Northern Lights, the midnight sun and dozens of wonderful galleries, museums and amazing cities, all in my downtime. I have a wonderful life as a Wandering Minstrel! “

“UNCOVERED” includes a remake of Steve’s popular song “Love, Compared With You” with a newly composed third verse, plus eleven other songs he has always wanted to perform. The album features Barry Wickens on viola and acoustic guitar, Oli Hayhurst on double bass, Tom Hooper on percussion and Roots Music Legend, Martin Simpson, on guitar. Steve also sings a duet with the amazing Scottish singer, Eddi Reader.

The acoustic sets for 2022 will include songs from the new CD, plus a selection from the large and eclectic Harley Songbook. Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Sebastian and the legendary Make Me Smile will all be reproduced in the unique acoustic style.
