Mike Silver is the headline act at this week’s Faldingworth Live concert.
Mike has more than 40 years of experience as a writer, singer, guitarist and live performer and has been enjoying a quiet success story throughout the UK and in various territories around the world.
His songs give expression to authentic human emotions without becoming sentimental. Signed to Elton John’s Rocket Records in 1973, Silver toured the USA supporting Dory Previn, and Ashford and Simpson.
His work as a studio musician and backing vocalist with Charles Aznavour, Chris de Burgh, Ralph McTell, Ray Thomas (Moody Blues) and many more is well documented.
His ability to write and perform songs, which transcend many guitar and musical styles, was recognised by Justin Hayward who recorded Mike’s song, ‘Maybe It’s Just Love’ on his solo album Night Flight.
Even after many years travelling, singing and playing Mike is still fascinated by music, to him it is a never ending voyage of discovery.
Mike’s latest release - ‘Jack Dances’, yet another collection of finely crafted songs - brings the number of albums to 17. Support act at Faldingworth Memorial Hall on Saturday, June 29, is close harmony duo Hissyfir.
Now based in Beverley, Hazel is originally from Scotland and Linda from the Midlands.
They began singing together to take advantage of their joint love of traditional folk music and Hazel brought harmonies to the songs that Linda had begun to write. These were inspired by her interest in the demise of the east coast fishing industry and the people of Hull.
Tickets for the concert cost £8, which can be booked now and paid on the door. Call Les Worrall 01673 843036 or 07771 745470.
