Horncastle’s very own singer-songwriter Elliott Morris is playing the legendary London
Palladium on November 2 as the support act to Paul Carrack (Squeeze, Mike and The Mechanics, Eric Clapton).
Morris supported Carrack on half of his UK tour from October 2013 to April
2014 and is now invited back for a further 30 shows, kicking off at the London
He said: “I couldn’t believe it when I was asked. I actually had to look it up
– not because I didn’t know it, but to see if it was THE actual Palladium. And
yeah, it is!”
Morris who is a completely unsigned, independent artist, explained how a
chance opportunity led to him initially supporting Paul Carrack and his band.
He said: “In August 2012, I got a call from The Embassy Theatre in Skegness, saying
Paul was without a support and they’d recommended me.
“I snapped it up and afterwards told him I’d love to do it again sometime.
“I must have done something right as here I am speaking about playing at the Palladium!
“I could have never imagined it would lead to this and all the other wonderful shows
I’ve been playing with such an incredible cast of musicians. I can’t wait for the
tour to begin!’
Elliott’s, highlights so far this year have included five performances at
Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, where he won the coveted Danny Kyle Award
in 2013, and slots at the Cambridge Folk Festival, The Secret Garden Party
and Hop Farm Festival.
The Lincolnshire-based singer-songwriter has just toured the UK with fellow guitarists Chris Woods and Will McNicol, along with four headline dates in Germany and Holland.
He plans to release a new EP in November to coincide with the Paul Carrack tour.
