LIVERPOOL SINGER-songwriter Ian Prowse has been called “rousing, inspirational” by The Daily Mirror, while his music has been declared “passionate, engrossing, evocative” by Record Collector.
Galway will see why when the acclaimed musician plays Monroe's Live on Thursday November 19 at 10pm, as part of a tour promoting his new album, Alma De Mis Companeros, which finds Prowse covering songs from England, Scotland, and Ireland.
Prowse is best known for his work with the groups, Pele (1990s ) and Amsterdam (2000s ). One of his most famous songs, Amsterdam’s ‘Does This Train Stop On Merseyside’, was a favourite of the late DJ John Peel. He has often collaborated with Elvis Costello, and Amsterdam supported Costello on his recent tours. Prowse’s first solo album Who Loves Ya Baby was released in 2014.
Prowse will be joined by Amsterdam for the show, performing solo, Amsterdam, and Pele material. Tickets are €8/5. See www.monroes.ie
