    "We like the intimacy of our shows, it seems to work really well.

    "I’ve been around since 1963, which is hard to believe.

    "Carmello always says: ‘You’re the only person I know who’s managed to not have a proper job in 60 years’, which is something.

    "I remember my older brother had a lot of American vinyl records back in the day, which inspired me, and I’ve always been a big fan of Dusty Springfield.

    Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri.

    “When I got signed to a record label at 16 in 1963, they put me in touch with a manager who had just signed Dusty. She was a big star and I got to sing backing vocals on some of her songs.

    “I love all the new album, it’s very varied and it’s got a kind of Americana feel about it, like American country blues, and it’s quite souly.

    "I’m very grateful that I’m still able to do what I’m doing and as long as my voice still holds up and my spirit holds up, then I’ll just keep going a bit longer.

    Doors for the show will open at 7.30pm and the performance will begin at 8pm.
