Live Bands & Gigs


Prelude have been touring since the 1970’s and originate from North East England. They are probably best known for their hits in the 70’s and 80’s with their unique acapella version of Neil Young’s song ‘After the Goldrush’, their own song ‘Platinum Blonde’, and their version of Roy Orbison’s ‘Only the Lonely’.
They toured with Ralph McTell and provided the background vocals on his No1 hit, ‘The Streets of London’. They also toured with Joan Armatrading, Michael Chapman and Don McClean.
Prelude’s set list is a mixture of their own compositions and their favourite songs by the likes of Paul Simon, James Taylor, Neil Young etc. Irene and Brian Hume are original members of the band. Irene is regarded and one of the finest female vocalist to come out of the North East of England, whilst Brian has written many of the group’s songs including ‘City Tonight’ and ‘Freedom’.
In 2010, Paul Hooper joined as percussionist. Paul was drummer with The Fortunes who had numerous hits in the 60’s and 70’s and he toured the world with the band. Accomplished bass player Keith Tulip joined in 2012 and he gives a great jazzy feel to the group.
