BRITAIN’S favourite musical twins bring their latest tour to Wiltshire next month, with The Proclaimers set to play Salisbury’s City Hall on May 21.
Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid have enjoyed huge success across the globe as the emotional honesty, political fire, wit and sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans new and old.
The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide. In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums In UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Following on from the theatre success of the musical drama featuring songs by The Proclaimers, ‘Sunshine On Leith’ the movie version was a hugely popular release in 2013, spending a month in the Top Ten generating over £4.8 million at the UK box office, the fifth highest grossing independent release of the year. Expect to hear the classics Sunshine on Leith, (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles, Letter From America, I’m on My Way, Life With You, Lets Get Married and more.
Special guest on the evening will be rambling folk singer Will Varley, who has famously walked over 500 miles along England’s south coast with a guitar on his back, and saw an incredible year last year with the release of his critically acclaimed third album ‘Postcards From Ursa Minor’.
His previous two albums also received rave reviews from Q magazine & fRoots and he has been described by Frank Turner, as “one of the best singer-songwriters in the UK.”
