We are pleased to welcome singer songwriters Tim Chu and Ian Bailey who will be performing “A Celebration of Simon & Garfunkel” billed by the BBC “as the UK’s leading non tribute show currently dazzling live music lovers throughout the UK.”
Tim Chu has been a professional session musician for many years, and his music features in TV, Film and Radio. He has loved the music of Paul Simon from a young age as the original LPs were rarely off his parents’ record player!
Tim had the vision to put together the show and joined with Lancashire born Ian Bailey to complete the duo.
Ian has been a singer songwriter for many years, with three critically acclaimed solo albums of his own material. They blend in their own unique way, without falling into the tribute act category. Two great musicians performing some of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic songs in an intimate and relaxed way.
Lifelong friend of Ian, Shropshire singer/songwriter Gary Hall, who now lives in Church Stretton, says “We have been close friends and worked together in the studio for several years on various projects. When Ian first told me about show that he was embarking on with Tim I knew that it would be something special, knowing the quality of musicianship from both artists. I’m thrilled they have chosen the Silvester Horne as their Shropshire debut, don’t miss the show folks!”
“Everyone loves the music of Simon &Garfunkel and for me no one has created it better than Tim and Ian, the concert simply blew me away” Phil Cool, TV comedian, impressionist, and musician.
