Steve Harley Acoustic Band perform a set which is an unmissable chance for fans to connect with the man. The performance promises subtle lyricism, mingled with great improvisation and rocky rhythms.
An intimate night in the presence of a great musician. An individual whose passion for live performance and perfection (it shows in his face) remains undiminished.” Close-Up Culture
The set will be built around tracks from any or all thirteen of Steve’s original albums and will include all-time favourites like Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Mr Raffles, Sebastian, and of course the world-wide classic hit, Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me), all blending in with more recent tracks from critically-acclaimed albumsThe Quality Of Mercy and Stranger Comes To Town.
“Playing the songs in an acoustic format gives me time and space to enjoy every second. And we improvise, which is always a big excitement for any musician. We can loosen off the arrangements and really explore. It gets pretty exciting during the acoustic sets,” says Steve Harley.
Harley received a Lifetime Achievement Award for Acoustic Music from the Acoustic Festival of Britain in June 2018.
Rod Stewart has described Steve as “One of the finest lyricists Britain has ever produced”.
