PHIL COULTER - who has written songs for Van Morrison, Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard, and Luke Kelly - makes a welcome return to Galway's Town Hall Theatre.
The Derry born songwriter, pianist, and producer can boast of a career now stretching beyond 50 years. In that time he has penned two of the finest songs ever to come out of Ireland - 'Scorn Not His Simplicity' and 'The Town I Loved So Well'; produced albums for Planxty and The Bay City Rollers; wrote Elvis's Top 20 hit, 'My Boy'; and co-wrote the Eurovision classics, 'Puppet On a String' for Sandie Shaw, and 'Congratulations' for Cliff Richard. He has also just published an autobiography, Bruised, Never Broken.
For this show, Coulter will perform songs from across his illustrious career. The show takes place on Wednesday November 27 at 8pm. Tickets are from the Town Hall (091 - 569777, www.tht.ie ). See www.philcoulter.com
