Tom Robinson, a Solo Concert in aid of the African Great Lakes Peace Trust.
An up-close-and-personal evening of songs and stories with veteran songwriter and broadcaster Tom Robinson playing a rare solo show – and his first performance in Cornwall for over twenty years.
Tom’s musical journey began in 1974 when his first band was discovered by Ray Davies, and has since included a BBC ban for being ‘Glad To be Gay’, rocking against racism alongside The Clash, headlining Glastonbury with Peter Gabriel, writing lyrics for Elton John, drug smuggling in East Germany, two nervous breakdowns and a period in tabloid hell after falling in love with a woman.
Having made his peace with the BBC, he’s presented programmes on all the corporation’s national radio networks, and his broadcasting work has won two Sony Radio Academy awards.
Alongside crowd favourites like War Baby, Glad To Be Gay and 2-4-6-8 Motorway this show offers a chance to hear some hidden gems from Tom’s back catalogue across the past four decades.
Supporting Tom will be Joe Holtaway – https://joeholtaway.com/
Tom says, “I’ve been supporting Joe Holtaway’s music on my radio shows for BBC 6 Music for some years. In addition to his skills as a performer and songwriter, Joe is notable for his passionate engagement with the world around him. There is a constant sense that his music is not merely created in a vacuum, but made and delivered for the benefit of the wider community in which he finds himself. It’s precisely because his work enriches and affects more lives than just his own – as well as his connections with both Cornwall and the Quaker movement – that he was my choice of Special Guest for this show.”
