Midhurst Rother College


Adults £34 (18 & under £5)

The festival’s annual residency at Rother College’s
Theatre continues in the hands of the legendary
Roachford, one of the most compelling and
consistent rock and soul artists the UK has
produced. He has released 10 studio albums and
several greatest hits collections, been sought-after
as a songwriter by the likes of Michael Jackson,
Joss Stone and Chaka Khan, and consistently
toured solo and with contemporaries including
Terence Trent D’Arby and The Christians. For the
past nine years, he has been the voice of Mike + the Mechanics, recording with Mike Rutherford’s post- Genesis band and playing live with them across the world.

Roachford channels the energy of James Brown on stage each night, and on record summons up the spirit of everyone from Al Green to Joe Cocker. When he sings, you listen. A great night of live music…
