Event description
An evening of acoustic loveliness with Helen McCookeryBook.

About this Event

“Helen McCookerybook’s lyrics, frank and idiosyncratic, find poetry in the everyday- shards of broken glass in the ice cream.” -David Sheppard, Art & Music: the Saatchi Magazine

“… acoustically led, her songs are of love, politics and quite possibly, the kitchen sink, and her voice is pure as crystal.” -Paul Scott-Bates, Louder Than War

“’The Sea’ by Helen McCookerybook is gentle but scathing, quiet but raging, fierce but melodic.” -Cazz Blaise

Born and raised in Northumberland, Helen McCookerybook was the bassplayer/singer with Brighton indie band The Chefs and guitarist/singer with Helen and the Horns in the 1980s, both of whom were favourites of BBC Radio 1’s John Peel.

After a break to raise a family, she returned to the stage as a solo artist with a new set of songs, and since then has toured the UK regularly, releasing four solo albums.

She has recorded/gigged with artists such as Vic Godard, Lester Square, The Nightingales, The Wedding Present, and Upstairs At Monks favourite's son Martin Stephenson.

Tracks from her 2019 album ‘Green’ have been played on BBC6 by Gideon Coe and the song ’A Good Life with A Bad Apple’ was Gary Crowley’s track of the week.

2020 sees the release of her miniature vinyl album ‘Pea Soup’ and dates with Pauline Murray (Penetration), Johny Brown (the Band of Holy Joy) and the Flatmate, but for our own night Helen will be performimg songs around her new album, and it promises to be another wonderful night 'Upstairs At Monks'.
