Folk all-rounder Harvey Andrews heading to Sheringham

One of the UK folk world's greatest raconteurs. Harvey Andrews, is returning to north Norfolk where he has been a firm favourite with Cromer's Folk on the Pier festival audience.

He is heading to Sheringham Little Theatre on Friday October 7 for a 7.30pm concert.

The all-round performer takes audiences from laughter, to nostalgia and then get you to reflect upon some of the sadder moments of life.

From 1964 he supported his emerging career as a singer/songwriter by working as a schoolteacher, before becoming a full-time professional musician in 1966. Over the years he has produced 17 successful albums singing his own songs, many of which have also been recorded by other artists.

He has collaborated on a successful musical depicting life growing up in Birmingham in the forties and fifties.

"Go Play Up Your Own End" has been well received across the Midlands, especially in a latest production in 2006 featuring Jasper Carrott in a major role.

The musical has played at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, the Birmingham Hippodrome and the Alexandria Theatre - setting a record of having been staged at every one of the second city's major theatres.
