NORTH East-based singer songwriter Pete Scott brings a mixture of serious contemporary and funny songs to two Lancaster district pubs this week.

Scott, from the Newcastle area, performs at the Robert Gillow in Lancaster tonight, Thursday, and the Royal Hotel in Heysham village on Sunday night. He toured extensively in the 70s and 80s supporting names like Lindisfarne, Janis Ian, Judy Tzuke, John Martyn and Richard Thompson.

He has two albums out – Why Sing Goodbye Songs and Talking to a Stranger – with song titles like Yuri Gagarin’s Banjo, Love is Something You Get Conned Into, and Anita O’Day’s Hat.

Catch him from 8pm at both venues, with free admission.

The Centre@Halton is holding its second tribute act gig next month following its sellout Meatloaf show back in March. The Bon Giovi Tribute Show, which is actually the real name of the real Jon Bon Jovi (John Francis Bongiovi), appears at the Low Road venue on September 24 fronted by Italian performer Andrea Oggiano.
