The Songs of 1965-75: Scenes from a Well-spent Youth
Kiwi-born singer Tim Benton (now living in London) teams up with award-winning jazz and cabaret arranger/accompanist for a 'reflective trawl' through a golden era in pop music. Expect fresh takes on songs by Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, The Kinks and more.
"Unusual and unusually entertaining” Pop Culture Classics
“Kiwi performer Tim Benton is spot-on.” The Stage UK
Between songs, Tim will be reminiscing (not too much) about the early days of his performing career in Wellington.
"For those of us of a certain age, these were the songs of our well-spent youth. It’s fascinating to explore what they mean to us today, 40-50 years on.
"Younger generations will enjoy discovering great ‘new’ songs (somewhat re-arranged) from a particularly fertile era in popular music. UB40 were not the first to introduce ‘Red, Red Wine’!
The 3pm start time makes it an ideal way to round off Sunday dinner at one of the excellent pubs and restaurants in this lovely part of London.
