ONE of the great forces in 90s pop culture is bringing music to the people.
Saxophonist Snake Davis put the icing on the cake for Take That’s A Million Love Songs, M People’s Search For The Hero and a host of other hits. And with his band The Burden Of Paradise, he's playing a series of performances in 2019.
The band is acoustic — or 'blindingly quiet' as they have it — and plays an enchanting range of songs, from Elizabethan ballads to 80s torch songs, from Doris Day to Bob Dylan.
Singer Helen Watson also has a luminary history, having recorded two albums with legendary producer Glyn Johns, which featured members of The Eagles, Little Feat and Andy Fairweather-Low. The band is completed by double bassist Dave Bowie Jr, who plays with the Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain.
