Nat King Cole Centenary Songbook

Friday 28th June 7.30pm

AA - Nat King Cole songbook A5 - generic

Andy Abraham is known across the country as the runner up of ITV’s 2005 series of The X Factor. He captured the hearts of the country then and will do so once again, as he has masterminded a special new tour called The Nat King Cole Songbook.

Throughout his career, Nat King Cole recorded more than 100 songs, and so Andy has had the unenviable task of selecting just a handful of tracks for the show. While Andy certainly hasn’t ignored the challenge that comes with stepping into the shoes of a man like Nat, he has already successfully covered hits from some of the most legendary music icons, so is the perfect vocalist for the feat. And, with his versatile voice and undying passion for Nat’s music, there is no doubt that he will do the man, and his music, great justice.

The show itself will be a mix of some of Nat’s most-loved songs, and, always a stickler for keeping his shows interactive Andy will also include intervals of thought provoking commentary throughout.
