Mike Silver -  Singer, songwriter and performer

Songs from the soul –straight to the heart

It’s that moment when the song wings in under the radar and goes straight to your heart; that’s what you’ll remember most about Mike Silver – how the music born of his soul speaks to you, knows who you are, echoes your thoughts and experiences – and, before you know it, becomes a beloved part of you forever.

Mike Silver is a superb songwriter, masterful guitarist and captivating performer, beguiling audiences with music that reaches out and draws you in, with a voice that is warm, embracing and richly resonant. With a lifetime of professional music behind him, plus a busy on-going concert, song-writing and recording schedule, Mike continues to perform throughout the UK, Europe and America, captivating audiences with songs of insight, experience - and acute observation of our all-too-vulnerable human condition.

After seeing and hearing Mike perform for the first time one fan, among so many who have written in, said, “I will never forget that evening at Hitchin. I didn't expect to find heaven in The Sun Hotel”.
Variously reminiscent of James Taylor, Phil Collins, even Sting, Silver matches the talent of his better known peers, his beautifully restrained delivery is especially noteworthy. Silver produces the goods -
something that will come as no surprise to his loyal fans.

Mike will be supported by Canterbury's own Jo Hook.  Jo's stage presence and engaging persona enables her to interact with the audience effortlessly and carries an understated flamboyance that is miles away from arrogance and is simply a case of confidence, inner focus and belief in her music.
