Doors open 8pm – tickets available on the door


Steve Nieve, member of the rock and roll hall of fame, has been playing keyboards for Elvis Costello for more than thirty years, firstly as a member of The Attractions, and in more recent times with The Imposters. Steve worked on all but three of Costello’s  30  studio albums, including those with Burt Bacharach and Anne Sophie von Otter.  Other artists Steve’s keyboard stylings have graced include the Neville Brothers, Hot House Flowers, Graham Parker, Squeeze, Tim Finn, Kirsty MacCall, Madness, Nick Heywood, Morressey, David Bowie, Vanessa Paradis, Sting , Alain Bashung and others.

Perhaps the most intimate and riveting performances, however, were those where Elvis and Steve toured together creating a spellbinding tour-de-force of piano, guitar and voice. Anybody who has witnessed these or indeed any of Elvis Costello’s live shows will appreciate the special magic that occurs when Steve Nieve is let loose to solo on the piano.

Now, finally, get to experience a full evening of this magic as Steve and his piano take center stage. “Steve Nieve plays Elvis Costello with special guest Ajuq”  and a whole lot more.  You will hear themes from Steve’s  piano solo records “Keyboard Jungle” “It’s Raining Somewhere” “Lazy Point” – from “Windows”  from “Welcome to the Voice””.  Ajuq contributed to every track on “Together” and  in his own inimitable vocal style will sing some unexpected Costello songs..   Ajuq will also share some of his songs in a stripped bare unplugged mood. He just returned from a tour in Taiwan with a traditional Taiwanese Orchestra playing Ajuq’s music. Steve Nieve joined him in this adventure.  Steve and Ajuq also plan to perform some Mark Hollis songs in tribute to the leader of Talk Talk.

A great new concert to discover.
