Chris Difford, one half of the inimitable and timeless band, Squeeze, will be performing with some of his friends at the Hailsham Pavilion on
Sunday June 5 at 7.30pm.
Double Ivor Novello Award winning lyricist Difford, has with his collaborator, friend and Squeeze co-founder Glenn Tilbrook, written some of the most enduring and best-loved songs of our time, Up The Junction, Cool For Cats and Labelled With Love to name but a few.
With 17 Squeeze albums, three critically acclaimed solo albums, countless top 20 hits, 52 American tours, 50 UK tours and a variety of global tours under his belt, Chris is one of the country’s most respected songwriters.
Squeeze, the band that over the years has included such illustrious musicians as Jools Holland and Paul Carrack, seem busier than ever at the moment after recently putting out their first album of new material in 17 years.
Entitled Cradle To The Grave, it is an upbeat, nostalgic collection about growing up in London in the 1960’s and 1970’s, full of pithy observations of school, football, family life and first love set to flowing melodies and arrangements evocative of the era.
The title track was heard chiming over the credits of the hit BBC2 Peter Kay sitcom of the same name, inspired by broadcaster Danny Baker’s autobiography, Going to Sea in a Sieve. Tickets cost £19.50 in advance from 01323 841414 and www.pavilionhailsham.co.uk
