Richard Hawley is back in Vicar St. in Dublin and the Mandela Hall in Belfast after the resounding success of his last show.
Richard Hawley released his album â€˜Ladyâ€™s Bridgeâ€™ in August to critical acclaim. The albumâ€™s title â€˜Ladyâ€™s Bridgeâ€™ is a Sheffield landmark and the oldest bridge to cross the river Don. â€œI used to walk across it nearly every day, it was a gateway from the poor bit of town to the rich bitâ€ – Richard Hawley
The album was recorded at Yellow Arch Studio in Neepsend, Sheffield in the dilapidated building that Hawley had helped out with the restoration of almost four years ago.
Yellow Arch gives Hawley what he calls â€œthat Sun Studio red light factorâ€ and the pressure of turning up with the bones of an idea and leaving with a masterpiece.
Back in January he began recording with 40 songs in various states of togetherness. Four months later he left with 11 classics to add to the Hawley cannon.
