Our good friend Annie Walsh of WCFA Radio 101.5 Cape May brought Francis to the county back in 2021. She has been a friend of his and a fan for decades. Well let me tell you it was the most intense two hours of music I have ever heard, from his incredibly varied voice, to his harmonic attestations and cavorts on his guitar…..this artist is bringing his orginal works to your ears in ways you didnt know music could be heard! I hope you’ll join us for our summer concert which will sell out fast (they all do!) During his shows, Francis has considerable interaction with the audience on a philospohical and happily comedic bend. He makes you think. He makes you smile and he leaves you wanting more.
Francis has lived in East Stroudsburg. PA for many years and has released several new albums and continues a busy series of house concerts after having sold out concert venues across Europe. He has plans for a very humanitarian “art & life project” details he will announce on his own.
His latest album consisting of 41 tracks, entitled “THE BIG PURPLE CASTLE” is available at francisdunnery.com
Please note, THIS IS A LISTENING SHOW. NO PHOTOS/VIDEOS DURING THE PERFORMANCE, There will be plenty of time for a meet and greet after the performance for photos! Please also keep talking to a minimum during the show.
An old bio from Billboard Magazine:
The onetime frontman of the progressive rock group It Bites, singer/songwriter Francis Dunnery was born on Christmas Day, 1962 in Egremont, Cumbria, U.K. His tenure with It Bites began in 1984, and after three LPs concluded in 1990; during that time Dunnery invented the Tapboard, a unique guitar-like instrument fitted with such odd accessories as a shower hose and an egg timer. Turning towards a more conventional pop sound, he issued his first solo album, Welcome to the Wild Country, in 1991, and in 1993 played guitar in Robert Plant’s touring band; his first Atlantic effort, Fearless, followed a year later. After 1995’s Fearless, Dunnery issued a live effort titled One Night in Sauchiehall Street; upon leaving Atlantic, he signed with Razor and Tie to release Let’s Go Do What Happens in 1998. A follower of astrology and metaphysics, he also wrote “MusicScopes,” a weekly horoscope column for Billboard magazine. ~ Jason Ankeny
