10cc legend Graham Gouldman to close the London Acoustic Guitar Show on Sunday September 8, 2013, in association with Levinson acoustics and Go To Guitars
Will appear with Mick Wilson to play hits from the 10cc back catalogue and discuss his prolific songwriting in an exclusive, unplugged UK appearance
Graham Gouldman’s songs provide the soundtrack to so many teenage memories. From his first songwriting hit ‘For Your Love’ recorded by The Yardbirds in 1965, through memorable tunes and lyrics for The Hollies and Herman’s Hermits in the 60s, a decade of hits with 10cc in the 70s and early 80s, songwriting partnerships with Kirsty MacColl, Suggs from Madness, Andrew Gold, Gary Burr, Tim Rice and – still contributing to those teenage soundtracks – co-writing with McFly on their number one album Wonderland.
Graham Gouldman is the complete musician; it’s what he’s always done, it’s what he’ll always do. And he loves it: ‘I just can’t imagine doing anything else,’ he says. ‘I love working with new, sometimes unsigned artists. I know I benefit from their fresh perspective, I can only hope they then benefit from my experience.’
Graham Gouldman’s catchy tunes and lyrical messages have been entertaining music-lovers around the world for decades, and there’s much more to come. For now, enjoy his new album, Love and Work, out on Rosala Records and enjoy an intimate performance at this year’s London Acoustic Guitar Show before 10cc head out to play the UK’s arenas later this year.
Graham Gouldman appears in association with Levinson acoustics and Go To Guitars. Tickets are priced at £30 for the weekend, or £17.50 in advance.
