Friday 28 July:
John Shuttleworth – My Last Will and Tasty Mint
John Shuttleworth returns with his latest tour, following appearances on Celebrity Antiques Roadshow, Pointless and BBC Radio 4’s John Shuttleworth’s Lounge Music.
A recent health scare (well, a mild bout of Athletes Foot) has made “Sheffield’s finest singer/songwriter” (The Times) focus on his mortality and the many things he needs to do before the inevitable move into a hospice. Can sole agent Ken Worthington pull out the stops and make John a star before his retirement? As befits a man living on borrowed time, John considers Life’s major issues: like the excitement he felt when sucking his first mint: “It gave my tongue activity, as the mint’s flavours bore into me, turning my grey world azure blue. I remember my first Polo – do you?”
As well as jaunty new songs, John will bash out trusted favourites on his Yamaha organ: “Two Margarines”, “I Can’t Go Back To Savoury Now”, “Mutiny Over The Bounty”, “Y Reg” plus more recent crowd pleasers like “How’s Yer Nan?” and” Mingling With Mourners”.
“The man who does for the Bon Tempi organ what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar”. The Guardian
