"Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue... Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything... Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet." (attributed to Plato)

The Songs of Gregson & Collister revisited by Gregson & Simcock

First coming to notice with pop band Any Trouble, Clive Gregson went on to form a ground-breaking partnership with singer Christine Collister that Rolling Stone called "the state of the art in British folk-rock". Between 1985 and 1992 they released five acclaimed albums and toured worldwide. Christine's distinctive voice allied to Clive's songs, instrumental and production skills created something truly special.

Thirty years down the road, Clive now revisits the classic Gregson & Collister repertoire, having found the perfect vocal foil in Liz Simcock, herself an established singer-songwriter.

"I'm looking forward to performing some songs that I haven't played for a very long time," he says.
