English Nights at the Cafè Lisboa

English Nights at the Cafè Lisboa
The ninth edition of the "Nits Angleses al Lisboa" series of concerts, organised by Tomeu Gomila and dedicated to promoting new British artists from the singer-songwriter movement, will be held on October 23 and 24, as from 10 p.m., at the Café Lisboa in calle Sant Magí in Palma. The guest group is Jackie Leven, accompanied by the singer Deborah Greenwood.

Jackie Leven began his career in the 70's leading the Doll by Doll new wave/post-punk band, until 1982, when the group disbanded. Jackie resumed recording as a solo artist in 1983, but his career was curtailed when he was almost murdered by strangulation. Unable to speak or sing for some considerable time, and in exceptional psychological and physical pain, Jackie began taking heroin. This period of addiction came to an end when in 1985 he co-founded The CORE Trust, an holistic approach to addiction treatment based on Jackie's own experience. The recovery of his artistic career was in 1994, when he released "The Mystery Of Love Is Greater Than The Mystery Of Death", produced by Cooking Vinyl.

Tickets for the concert cost 8 euros, or 7 if you make a prior reservation by email: waitingforwaits@yahoo.es.
