Following his sold out 2012 concert, former Icicle Works frontman Ian McNabb returns to the Yorkshire House in Lancaster as part of his ‘Eclectic Warrior’ UK tour.

The Liverpool singer-songwriter will be bringing his electric – acoustic tour to the city on Saturday October 19, performing tracks from his latest release Eclectic Warrior in addition to songs from his solo career and Icicle Works days.

Emerging from the 1980’s Liverpool music scene, Ian started a musical journey as songwriter, lead singer and guitar player with The Icicle Works.

The initial run of hit singles – Love Is A Wonderful Colour, Birds Fly, When It All Comes Down, Evangeline, Understanding Jane, Little Girl Lost – has been followed by a critically acclaimed solo career, including a Mercury Prize Nomination for the 1994 album Head Like A Rock which was recorded with Neil Young’s band Crazy Horse.

Now in his third decade as a recording artist, Ian makes songs with “warmth, humour, cynicism and grandeur” and continues to tour his show to sold out audiences around the country.

Support on the night comes from Lancaster’s The Long Lost Band, with Stuart Anthony on vocals.

Tickets, priced £10, are available from and
