Steve Harley, the original Cockney Rebel, plays intimate, unique and atmospheric shows with his Acoustic Trio including his Cockney Rebel band-mates of long-standing, Barry Wickens on violin & guitar and James Lascelles on piano and percussion. The set will be built around tracks from any or all 13 of Steve’s original albums, including all-time favourites like Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Mr Raffles, Sebastian and the classic Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me), plus 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,” says Steve. “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.”
