Review of Boo Herwendine - 24th May 2006 © Paul Abraham
Boo Hewerdine = Class
After spending the day in the recording studio with Eddi Reader of Fairground Attraction fame, Boo returned to the New Roscoe in Leeds to demonstrate why he is acknowledged as a peerless performer. This unassuming person off stage has a confidence on stage, which makes the audience feel he is singing to them on a one to one basis. In a faultless set he performed many of his classics, including ‘Graceland’, ‘59 Yards’, ‘Bell, Book and Candle’ and the hit written for Eddi Reader ‘Patience of Angels’. With references to the now vanished “The Duchess” music venue in Leeds, Boo obviously has a soft spot for Leeds, which hopefully will see a return very soon.
