Clive Gregson & Liz Simcock are releasing an album of brand new songs and will hit the road for another UK tour. Clive and Liz first toured together in 2015 in a series of shows performing songs from the Gregson & Collister back catalogue.
From 1985 to 1992 Clive Gregson and Christine Collister were at the very top of the game in acoustic and roots music, Rolling Stone calling them “the state of the art in British folk-rock.” They released five albums, played countless shows all over the world before deciding to go their separate ways.
Since then, Clive’s illustrious and varied career has continued apace. He has toured and recorded with Richard Thompson, Nanci Griffith, Eddi Reader and Boo Hewerdine, Plainsong and Any Trouble, not to mention releasing 13 solo albums.
In 2015 Clive asked songwriter and singer Liz Simcock to join him in a UK tour, a chance to revisit some of the songs from Gregson & Collister days. Clive says “playing shows that celebrate a hugely enjoyable part of my musical career was well overdue. It had been a very long time since I performed many of those songs…” Liz was delighted to be asked, saying … “I’ve always been a huge fan of Gregson & Collister and couldn’t think of anything nicer to be invited to do. They were what got me into writing songs and I think it’s a real privilege to be doing this.” The tour coincided with the release by Cherry Red of a deluxe edition of “Home and Away”, the debut Gregson & Collister CD.
The 2015 tour was a resounding success. So much so that Clive and Liz decided to keep the train rolling, play more duo shows and record a CD of brand new Gregsongs for release in September 2017. This tour will support the release. The duo is really looking forward to hitting the road again to play Gregson & Collister classics and brand new favourites alike.
