Larry BeckettLiverpool is set for a memorable night of live music and poetry when respected American poet and lyricist Larry Beckett visits for one of only two UK shows. He will perform at the View Two Gallery on 26th June 2015. TICKETS

Larry Beckett, who was Tim Buckley’s lyricist right up until his untimely death in 1975, will be reading some of his poetry and lyrics in the gallery’s intimate performance space on Mathew Street.

Larry wrote the lyrics to Song to the Siren, first released on Buckley’s 1970 album Starsailor and subsequently covered by a diversity of stars including George Michael, Half Man Half Biscuit, Robert Plant, The Chemical Brothers, Sinéad O’Connor, and Bryan Ferry.

Joining Larry will be The Long Lost Band who will be performing Song To The Siren, plus new song On The Hook. Larry wrote the lyrics for On The Hook in early summer 1975 but Tom died before composing the music. Four decades later Larry Beckett gave the lyrics to The Long Lost Band who completed the song and will be debuting it on the night at the View Two.

Support on the night is provided by local singer-songwriter David James Robertson, plus duo Geoghegan Jackson.
