The George Harrison Project celebrates a musical icon at South Mill Arts
A musical icon who was part of arguably the biggest band of all time will be honoured in a show taking place at South Mill Arts in Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday February 17.
The George Harrison Project celebrates the musician’s hits with The Beatles, his solo career and Traveling Wilburys.
Alongside John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Harrison helped The Beatles become the best-selling music act of all time with 600 million units shifted worldwide.
After the Liverpudlian four-piece called time on Beatlemania, the songwriter formed Traveling Wilburys, a supergroup featuring Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
Harrison, who died in 2001 aged just 58, also enjoyed a successful solo career, releasing 12 studio albums, including Living In The Material World, Cloud Nine, Brainwashed and the classic triple album All Things Must Pass.
Visiting South Mill Arts as part of a 2024 tour of 40 dates, the George Harrison Project will recreate hits like While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Something, Here Comes The Sun, Cheer Down, Handle With Care, Taxman, My Sweet Lord and Got My Mind Set On You.
The show also includes video footage and information about George and his music, and is suitable for all ages.
Tickets for the performance, which starts at 7.30pm, cost £24. See www.southmillarts.co.uk to book.
