The Steve Harley Acoustic Trio - UK Tour 2019

Steve Harley Acoustic trio, UK Tour 2019

Steve Harley, the original Cockney Rebel, tours frequently with his Acoustic Trio, playing an intimate, unique and atmospheric show. The performance promises subtle lyricism, mingled with great improvisation and rocky rhythms.

Considered one of the greatest, most charismatic Live performers at work today, the original Cockney Rebel tours with a full 6-piece rock band, as well as presenting shows in a 3-man electro-acoustic format. Barry Wickens is the ever-present violinist, and James Lascelles (piano/percussion), Paul Cuddeford (guitar), Kuma Harada (bass) and original band member, Stuart Elliott (drums) complete the line-up.

The set will be built around tracks from any or all 13 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 albums The 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.
