LEGENDARY American singer/songwriter Dean Friedman is coming to Runcorn.

The recording artist, now 61, will be performing songs from his three decade career at The Brindley on May 19.

He shot to fame with his chart topping hit Lucky Stars which paved the way for his critically acclaimed album Well, Well, Said the Rocking Chair.

Lydia, Rocking Chair, Woman of Mine, McDonald’s Girl and Ariel are just some of his much loved songs.

In a very short time, he became a pop icon and was acknowledged by critics and fans as one of the finest singer/songwriters of his generation.

Dean pursued his career as an independent artist with albums financed not by a major label, but directly by his fans through his website.

He has earned a loyal, international following with his insightful and compelling true-to-life story songs.

Numbers like Saturday Fathers, Jennifer’s Baby, Where Have All the Angels Flown?, Under the Weather and It’s My Job have prompted fans to proclaim his songs as the ‘soundtrack of their lives’.

They love the way his songs deal with family, friends, neighbours, work and the seemingly trivial, yet ultimately compelling stuff of everyday life.

This gifted singer promises to bring an evening of powerful, poignant and hilarious songs about the ordinary and extraordinary lives we share.

Tickets priced £19 and available from the box office on 0151 907 8360 or online at thebrindley.org.uk.
