Paul Heaton to tour English pubs
Ex-Beautiful South singer and guitar player Paul Heaton is to play a series of small gigs in traditional pubs.
The musician, who is also famous for his work with The Housemartins, is going back to the grass roots of music in order to raise awareness of the difficulties many small venues are currently experiencing.
Heaton's publicity drive has been welcomed by the British Beer and Pub Association, as factors such as cheap alcohol in supermarkets have put lots of pubs under strain.
The organisation also believes that the smoking ban has added to the pressures faced by the British pub industry, along with high levels of taxation and alcohol duty.
"Many of them are really struggling," said regional secretary Lee Le Clercq.
"We need to get behind the pub and start using them."
Mr Le Clercq added that if people do not support their local drinking establishment, they could be lost.Posted on 12 Jan 2010 10:14 to category : Band / Celebrity News
