Legendary soul and blues singer Chris Farlowe is performing at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester, on October 19.
Inspired by Lonnie Donegan, Farlowe's musical career began with a skiffle group The John Henry Skiffle Group in 1957, before he joined The Johnny Burns Rhythm and Blues Quartet, in 1958. He met guitarist Bob Taylor in 1959 and, through Taylor, joined The Thunderbirds, who went onto record five singles for the Columbialabel. He released a cover version of "Stormy Monday Blues" under the pseudonym of "Little Joe Cooke" which perpetuated the myth that he was a black singer. He had his first number one in 1966 with the classic track ‘Out of Time’. Since then he has written and recorded music for the BBC as well as his own material.
During his career, he’s guested with some of the greats including Van Morrison and toured with The Manfreds, PJ Proby, Alan Price and many others. From Stormy Monday via Handbags & Glad Rags to his massive Number One hit Out of Time, this concert is one not to be missed.
