THE KATE BUSH SONG BOOK - 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR with DEL PALMER

 

As a young girl Kate Bush was shown middle C on the piano by her father and left to develop her musical imagination. She went on to write some of the most affecting songs in popular music. This Woman’s WorkWuthering Heights and The Man with the Child in His Eyes are well known examples but her 40 year career resounds with piano-based songs that dazzle with their complexity and lyrical invention. 

 

Cloudbusting’s acoustic offshoot THE KATE BUSH SONG BOOK explores the genius of Kate, her imagination and her piano. It features Mandy Watson’s vocals, Michael Mayell’s keyboards and for the purposes of this very special tour, a unique chance to hear Kate’s original bass player and studio engineer DEL PALMER contributing the magical bass lines that so characterise her music.

 

I wanted to celebrate 40 years of Kate’s music by working on some of her lesser-known songs with Mandy and Michael. Songs that some of my heroes and great friends contributed memorable bass parts to. Songs we worked so hard on in the studio to create complex arrangements also work so well in this simpler, more intimate setting.’ Del Palmer

 

 

THE KATE BUSH SONG BOOK visits venues across Ireland this October. Join us for a magical evening in appreciation of ‘this woman’s work’.

    Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush

    Pop

    Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC ONE as one of the most authentic tributes in the world. Their passion for Kate’s music has won over sceptical fans everywhere, challenging perceptions of what a tribute band can be and resulting in sell-out performances across the UK.

    ‘There can only be one Kate Bush’ says vocalist Mandy Watson, who never attempts to mimic Kate on stage. ‘When you sing her music the characters in the songs take over - they are what you become, not Kate. We're just fans, amazed at this opportunity to perform this music we love so much’

    Many of Kate’s original collaborators from stage and studio have been inspired to join the band on stage, including bass player Del Palmer, drummer Preston Heyman and dancer Stewart Avon Arnold, all of whom performed with Kate on her legendary Tour of Life live shows 40 years ago.
    ‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!' - Preston Heyman

    Running Up That Hill, Wuthering Heights, Hounds of Love, Babooshka, This Woman’s Work, Wow… Cloudbusting can’t wait to whip up a storm of love for Kate’s music once again in 2019, their new show featuring all the hits you’d expect as well as many songs you wouldn’t! Accompanied by eye-popping visuals that highlight the drama of Kate’s music, a Cloudbusting concert is an event no Kate Bush fan will want to miss.

    ‘We’re Cloudbusting, daddy!’
