Songs In The Key Of London

Chris Difford of Squeeze has curated a special event Songs In the Key of London to conclude the  Greenwich Summer Sessions this Sunday (31 July).

Described as “a live celebration of all the great songs inspired by and written about this wonderful city of ours.”  This concert will feature great musical talent, songwriters, tunesmiths and stars – personally invited by Difford to celebrate London in song.

Those confirmed include Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze), Gary Kemp (Spandau Ballet), Ali Campbell (UB40), Mark Nevin (Fairground Attraction), Boo Hewerdine (The Bible), the Godfather of Funk Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown), folk artists Chris Wood and Katherine Williams, Clare Teal (British jazz singer) and Nerina Pallott.

With some many great songs about London – from classic pop like Waterloo Sunset by The Kinks and Itchycoo Park by the Small Faces, to folk cornerstones like Streets Of London by Ralph McTell and London Conversation by John Martyn, to punk classics such as London Calling by The Clash, and Difford’s own Trafalgar Square – the programme is sure to be impressive.
