We’re getting more and more live music back on the airwaves and last week it was the turn of local band The George Harrison Project.
The George Harrison Project is a live music celebration showcasing George Harrison’s best-loved hits from his early Beatles songs, his solo career and, of course, The Travelling Wilburys.
The band comprises Gary Kenton on lead vocals, rhythm guitar and ukulele; Allan Gifford on drums; Al Jenkins on lead guitar and ukulele; and Dave Shalloe on bass. Dave has a long standing association with promoting music in Essex – he’s the producer of our long-running Creative Sessions series.
In a great session we heard six songs performed live plus a couple of their studio recordings. Bob – who’s been on air with us since 2011 – said that it was one of the best live sessions he’s ever presented on Phoenix FM.
Their next performance is at Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday (28 May) so you’ve got a chance to catch them live if you missed them.
