Loudhailer Electric Company with very special guest MG Greaves
We are delighted to be teaming up with Mike Greaves for our next gig at O’Rileys on Friday 20th March.
We’ll be premiering new songs in our set as well as favourites from albums Cursus and Morpheus.
MG Greaves: A true legend of the Hull music scene MG (Mike) Greaves certainly deserves to be a household name.
Known as the ‘Godfather of UK Country’, Steve Wright (BBC Radio 2) described him as “a British Bruce Springsteen” and the Radio Times gave him the accolade of ‘the future of country music in Britain’.
Mike is much more than a country singer, he is a superb songwriter and like all great country artists writes about people and their stories. Hull and it’s people run strongly through the veins of Mike’s songs
Paul Heaton of the Beautiful South has long been a fan of Mike’s and the Beautiful South recorded seven of his songs including Diamond Always Shine and Frank and Delores, both of which featured on the million selling album Carry On Up The Charts.
In 2011 Mike performed at the Manchester International Festival as part of Paul Heaton’s song anthology The 8th and In 2014 Mike launched the Hull Music Archive at Hull’s Adelhpi Club, alongside Wreckless Eric.
A live entertainment venue, home to original and covers bands, burlesque, boxing, stand-up comedy and indoor market events.
