Boo Hewerdine is an English singer-songwriter and record producer. His work includes lead singer and creative force behind The Bible, formed in the 1980s, and reformed in 1994, as well as solo recordings and work for film. He has also produced records by several artists, and has been described as “one of Britain’s most consistently accomplished songwriters”. Indeed, one of his most famous songs, “Patience of Angels” earned him a nomination for the Ivor Novello Award in 1995.

Brit Award winning, former Fairground Attraction singer (and Scottish national treasure) Eddi Reader (MBE) is perhaps the artist Boo Hewerdine is most regularly associated with, as a songwriter, musician and producer. As well as the international success they enjoyed together with “Patience of Angels”, Boo also produced Reader’s “Sings the Songs of Robert Burns” in 2003, an album now viewed as a folk classic.

In a 2009 review of his album God Bless the Pretty Things, the BBC described Hewerdine as “one of Britain’s most consistently accomplished songwriters”.  Nick Coleman of The Independent on Sunday described him as “one of the best songwriters we have”, and The Birmingham Evening Mail called him “one of the country’s finest lyricists”.

Rhys Wilson has been writing songs and playing guitar since his teens and currently plays at many venues in and around the Cambridge area. Rhys has played at the club on his own and also as part of the popular Thursday’s Band and we’re delighted to welcome him back.
