Postponed to 13 May: Boo Hewerdine

Ashburton Arts Centre


Mon 29 Jan – Latest: Boo Hewerdine will now be playing here at Ashburton Arts Centre on Monday 13 May 2024. Tickets here.

I just heard today (Sunday 28 Jan) that Boo is going to be unable to be with us in Ashburton this Friday. This is a consequence of the disruption to trains being caused by the rail strike which is happening on 5 February. The advice on the GWR site is that travel on Saturday 3 Feb is likely to be subject to last-minute delays and cancellations. Boo has a big show in Glasgow for the Celtic Connections festival on Saturday 3 Feb, and feels that relying on the train to get there on the day isn’t a good idea. Other options have been explored, but there’s none available.
Boo IS performing near Taunton on Thursday 1 Feb, with Reg Meuross at Halsway Manor, just over an hour from Ashburton. See – there are tickets available there as I write.


Boo Hewerdine

For over 30 years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band, The Bible through to his subsequent solo work and long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader he has become something of a national treasure. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer. Over a hundred of his songs have been covered by the likes of KD Lang, Kris Drever, Chris Difford, Heidi Talbot and Hannah Rarity. His last album ‘Before’ was recorded with supreme Danish multi- instrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren. It garnered multiple five star reviews.

Since then he has released a lockdown EP, Singularities and a new album on Reveal Records. On this tour he will be singing songs from his new album and his extraordinary back catalogue. A naturally gifted raconteur his gigs are always a total joy.

It’s A Beautiful Night
The Patience Of Angels
The Man That I Am



Update: when this gig was originally announced, Billie Maree was to play as support. This was changed to Ben Morgan-Brown in early January.  If there’s to be a support on the new date, 13 May, it’ll be added here.



Billie Maree  is a fast emerging Devon singer-songwriter whose debut EP was inspired by connection to the land and and to self.
“I believe music has the power to have an impact on our emotional well being and access parts of our being we may not be in contact with” says Billie Maree.

“When approaching Billie Maree, one must be ready to embrace her nuanced artistry – an invisible force that constantly draws you in, making it hard to stop listening” Gabriel Maza, Mezmerized

“Brightness swirls with melancholy in its stripped-back arrangement. Her poetic lyrics and unconventional style means Young Child isn’t your typical acoustic singer songwriter track. There’s just something wonderfully inventive about it all”  York Calling (Young Child)
