Norman Prince and Paul Johnston will perform another evening of Lancashire songs and stories at Morecambe's The Platform venue on Friday 30th October.
Norman Prince was the front man and leader of the country’s top comedy folk group, The Houghton Weavers, for over 24 years and his humour and tales were a major part of the Weavers’ success. Their TV series Sit Thi Deawn is still the definitive example of North West life in songs and humour. He left the band nine years ago and is now one of the country’s top after dinner speakers, working at venues as far apart as Aberdeen, The Dorchester Hotel in London and L’Horizon Hotel in St Helier, Jersey.
Paul Johnston was a member of the legendary folk group, The Fivepenny Piece. He currently performs with is own group, Cracked Flag, and, like Norman, has amassed a tremendous knowledge of songs and stories over the last 20 years or so.
After meeting some of the old ‘Weavers’ fans at the dinners Norman was speaking at, they reminded him how good the nights had been and how much enjoyment his humour and song had given the fans. So, after chatting with his old mate Paul Johnston, he and Paul decided to get together every so often and return to their roots and Norman’s first love – the folk, comedy and music of his beloved Lancashire.
The combination of their talent and experience gathered over the years guarantee the audience an evening of fun and laughter unsurpassed in the theatres of today. The pair first performed at the Platform in October last year to a very enthusiastic audience so early booking is advised.
• The show will start at 7.30pm and tickets cost £11 adults, £10 concessions, from the box office on 01524 582803.
