Singer, guitarist and pianist Pete Atkin makes a rare solo appearance at The Lamb Folk Club on Wednesday July 3.
Pete generated an intensely loyal following during the 1970s with six albums [all reissued] setting his own music to the witty, touching and entertaining lyrics of Clive James who he had met while studying at Cambridge. Their songs were regularly aired on BBC Radio by Kenny Everett and later by John Peel and Bob Harris but, following the sixth album ‘Live Libel’, and with Clive’s increasingly heavy television workload, Pete virtually retired from the music business. Pete then enjoyed a successful new career as a radio producer and script editor with the BBC but, following renewed interest, in part due to the internet, he reunited with Clive in 2003 for a series of poetry/music tours in the UK, Australia and Hong Kong. The success of these tours led to a new studio album, ‘Winter Spring’, delighting fans old and new. Admission is £6 on the door, the concert starts at 8pm.
