Paul Weller Was A Surprise Guest At Robert Kirby Memorial Concert!

From NME:

Paul Weller was the surprise guest at a memorial concert for string arranger Robert Kirby yesterday (October 3). Kirby, who worked with artists including Nick Drake, Weller and Elvis Costello, died last year aged 61.

Weller performed ‘With Time And Temperance’ from his album ‘Heliocentric’ – which featured Kirby’s arranging – at the event, held at London’s Cecil Sharp House.

Speaking about Kirby, Weller said he was “a great man”, adding: “[We] made great music together and fell off many barstools together!”

With strings conducted by Harvey Brough, the memorial also saw performances from Vashti Bunyan, Teddy Thompson, Ben & Jason and Steve Ashley.
