h Natural in 2007
Steve Hogarth's Solo Voice and Piano shows...
Hello loves. Greetings from Eastern Europe! I am very well and very much back to fighting fitness. Thanks for your zillions of birthday messages. Read 'em all. Beautiful as ever. The band are well and happy. More about the Marillion tour soon, but..
This is a quick message to inform you that I have this week confirmed my ONLY h Natural show in North America in the foreseeable future. It will happen on July 2 at La Tulipe Theatre in Montreal. Tickets are available (priced CDN$35) at +1 514 790 1245 or 1-800-361-4595 (Canada Only) and on the Internet at www.admission.com.
I'll be adding more shows in Europe across the summer and will announce dates soon - the full list of confirmed dates and links to tickets and venues is in the TOUR section of the website.
Hope to see you there!
Mr. h
What is "H Natural"?
Steve began playing h Natural concerts last year in Europe, featuring songs from Marillion, The h Band, and his early work with The Europeans and How We Live. The shows also draw from a grab bag of inspired covers, including songs by David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Simon and Garfunkel, The Waterboys, and many others.
Each h Natural performance is unique, and not just in terms of the set list: Armed only with a piano and a sea of candles, Hogarth shares stories, chats with the audience, and sometimes sings for hours on end, depending on the evening's atmosphere.
The eponymously-titled h Natural DVD (available only from Racket Records) captures one of these shows - and individual audio downloads from the 2006 h Natural European Tour are available from the h-tunes website at www.h-tunes.com.
