Hartlepool : 16th June 2012


On Saturday 16th June 2012, Russell was the special guest of the Hartlepool Male Voice Choir at their Summer Celebrity Concert in the Borough Hall.

The Hall was packed to capacity and, as well as songs from the choir, Russell performed numbers from ‘Anthems’ as well as some of his own best-loved songs.  He opened his second set with a powerful Granada that left him breathless.  He raised the tempo to a flag-waving finale of  Jerusalem and Land Of Hope And Glory but the audience, of course, demanded “more” and he obliged with a wonderful  Core ‘n Grato before leaving to a standing ovation.

There are photos from the rehearsal, courtesy of the choir, on  Flickr  and a report in the  Hartlepool Mail.
