Heart full of songs

Heart full of songs

Class hit songwriter and musician Graham Gouldman performed in Beckenham last night as part of the annual ‘Arts at St George’s festival. Graham, accompanied by an excellent acoustic trio of Iain Hornal and Keith Hayman, and Dave Cobby, delivered a marvellous set of hits including songs he had written for the Yardbirds (Heart full of soul, For your love), The Hollies (Bus stop, Look through any window), and Herman’s Hermits (No milk today).

The evening also included, understandably, a sprinkling of excellent 10cc tracks (Good morning judge, The things we do for love, I’m not in love, Dreadlock holiday), songs he had written with Andrew Gold such as Bridge to your heart and commissioned numbers for films (Love’s Not for Me (Rene’s Song). The tour is highlighting the impending release of his new album, I Have Notes, scheduled for release in early July. I must add that the harmony vocals were top notch throughout and sounded wonderful in the spacious surroundings of the Church.

Graham was supported by Tara Maclean, a Canadian author and artist, who has a beautiful, evocative voice and ensured a memorable start to the evening.
