Harvey Andrews, folk singer/writer, who has been a regular performer in the City, chose Lichfield’s Guildhall as the venue for the final performances of a long musical career which started way back in 1964.
Loyal fans travelled from many parts of the country, several from France and Germany to share in this special event.
The atmosphere was happy and relaxed, as Harvey delighted the sell-out audiences, involving everyone , with his unique blend of whimsical musings which have always been interspersed with his songs. This weekend there was perhaps an added touch of poignancy about the tales of people and events which had been a such an integral part of his life and career.
He has always prided himself on producing and singing songs which tell a real story – often topical, personal or political –always written in “proper” English, with an enduring soft, musical theme.
He was supported by his family, who joined him on stage when he received a standing ovation from those who had followed his success and who wished him well in his retirement.
