GIL­BERT O’SUL­LI­VAN

Evergreen - - Clippings -

MADAM: Thank you for the won­der­ful ar­ti­cle on Gil­bert O’Sul­li­van ( “Juke Box”, Win­ter 2016) which alerted us to his concert tour! He was a par­tic­u­lar favourite of mine in the 1970s and some years ago I in­tro­duced my son to his mu­sic. Even though we live in France, we made a point of catch­ing his concert in Lon­don, on Sun­day 5th March at The Bar­bican. The Hall was quite full and it was great to see var­i­ous age groups singing along with Gil­bert and his 10- per­son band, which included two lovely young women singers.

I must ad­mit that I hes­i­tated a bit be­fore buy­ing the tick­ets, I was afraid his newer songs would be just take- offs of the old hits. On the con­trary, his many new tunes are as rich, as mov­ing and as much fun as any of the old beloved songs. So, if any­one is hes­i­tat­ing about go­ing to his concert, don’t, there is a wider spec­trum of Gil­bert out there for us fans to en­joy! — AN­NIE- CHRIS­TINE MATHEWS, PARIS, FRANCE.
