Terry Conway – Haydon Bridge Sessions

The Haydon Bridge SessionsTerry Conway was a simply wonderful singer and an outstanding composer, he died in 2013 at the age of 66. Terry had an amazing way with words and his songs cover a wide breadth of subjects from local characters to world events; often including philosophy & comedy. Last night there was a celebration of his music at the Queen’s Hall in Hexham and in conjunction with this, a CD re-issue of Terry’s 1992 tape “The Haydon Bridge Sessions” was launched.
