Chris Farlowe (born Essex, England, 13.Oct.1940) is is one of the great underrated British soul & blues influenced singers.
Farlowe’s musical career has one starting point in the John Henry Skiffle Group and other similar bands. In 1962 the first single “Air Travel” was released without much success. Around 1963 or 1964 ‘The Thunderbirds’ were formed and the band included the great guitarist Albert Lee and keyboardist Dave Greenslade. The band recorded five singles on the UK EMI subsidiary Columbia, but none made any impact on the charts. The singer was generally believed to be black.
Success came only after a move to the Immediate label. The label was started by The Rolling Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham. Accordingly Farlowe got to record a lot of Jagger/Richards compositions and some of his records were produced by Mick Jagger. Out of 11 singles five had covers of the Rolling Stones’ songs on them.
No Events Found
Following the latest announcements of a 10pm closing for bars and venues we announce clarification of our policy.
Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2020 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).
Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.
Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.
We are proving currently with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.
If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.
We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible.
Curfew looks a mid to long-term policy we will all have to learn to adapt to and we are certain that our events will be a great success.
Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.
The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
