Cliff, The Shadows & Dusty
This is a show that celebrates the hit songs of three popular artists in their own right, Cliff Richard, The Shadows & Dusty Springfield.
With over 250 million record sales worldwide, Sir Cliff Richard is a British pop singer and performer who dominated the British popular music scene in the pre-Beatles period of the late 1950’s to early 1060’s.
The Shadows are a British instrumental rock group and were Cliff Richard’s back band. With 69 UK chart singles from the 1050’s to 2000’s, 35 credited to the Shadows and 34 to Cliff Richard and the Shadows. This group, who were in the forefront of the UK beat-group boom, were the first backing band to emerge as stars. The core line-up was Hank Marvin on lead guitar, Bruce Welch on rhythm guitar and Brian Bennett on drums. The distinctive sound of Hank’s Fender guitar played a major role to the success of The Shadows.
Dusty Springfield was an English pop singer whose career extended from the late 1050’2 to the 1990’s. With her unique sensual mezzo-soprano sound, she was an important blue-eyed soul singer and at her peak was one of the most successful British female performers.
This show concentrates mainly on the early Cliff Richard. You will hear songs Move It, The Young Ones, Living Doll, Summer Holiday. Congratulations and many more. The Dusty songs will include Son of a Preacher Man, You Don’t have to Say You Love me, I Only Wanna Be We You, Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.
