About the Show
Terry began his musical career in Blues and Soul bands in the 1960s touring extensively in the UK Europe and the Middle East.
His passion is for the music of the 1920s to the 1950s performing songs by Hoagy Carmichael, George Gershwin, Cole Porter , Rodgers and Hart and many others of the great songwriters of this period.
For the last ten years he has been presenting very successfully, to many organisations and groups a programme of 1920s to 1950s songs with stories and anecdotes about the songwriters, composers and performers.
His radio programme Café Americain features a wide selection of music that originates from the 1920s through to the 1950s with vintage and more contemporary recordings.
Swing, Jazz, Blues, British Dance Bands, music from shows and films and anything else that fits.
