The Matt Monro Story coming to  King’s Hall, Ilkley

Matthew Frederick Monro is Matt Monro’s son and he often performs his father's work. In 1977, when Monro Junior was 13, he was invited by his father to join him on stage to perform a duet. In 1986, a year after his father’s death, a tribute was organised at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London in which Monro Junior performed to over 2000 people.

In 1989/90 he toured Britain and from this developed his act which he'd tour with a 9-piece band, performing his own version of his father’s songs. In 1995 modern technology enabled him to sing with his father again. The album, Matt Sings Monro, is a collection of Matt Monro songs, rearranged as duets featuring Monro Junior and Senior.
