From 1985 to 1992, Clive Gregson and Christine Collister were at the very top of the game in acoustic and roots music. They released five albums, played countless shows all over the world decided to go their separate ways.

In early 2015, Cherry Red (the respected reissue label) asked for permission to release a deluxe edition of “Home and Away”, the debut Gregson & Collister CD. It seemed logical to look at the possibility of playing some live shows to promote the CD.

Clive decided to ask Liz Simcock if she was interested in joining him for a tour celebrating the music of Gregson and Collister. Here’s what Liz had to say… “I’ve always been a huge fan of Gregson & Collister and couldn’t think of anything nicer to be invited to do. They were what got me into writing songs and I think it’s a real privilege to be doing this.”

Clive added… “Playing shows that celebrate a hugely enjoyable part of my musical career was well overdue. It had been a very long time since I performed many of those songs… and I couldn’t think of anybody better to have along for the ride than Liz. She’s a terrific singer and an ideal fellow traveler.”

The 2015 tour was a resounding success. So much so that Clive and Liz decided to keep the train rolling, play more duo shows and record a CD of brand new Gregsongs. The duo are really looking forward to hitting the road again to play songs from ‘Underwater Dancing’along with Gregson & Collister classics.
