Paul Heaton, one of the UK’s most successful songwriters with some 10 million album sales under his belt, first came to public attention in the early 80s as front man of Hull-based indie poppers The Housemartins best known for their third single ‘Happy Hour’ and their No 1 acapella Isley Bros cover ‘Caravan of Love’. In ’88 Heaton formed The Beautiful South, who released 10 hugely successful albums.

The Forest Live gigs will see them play material from their albums as a duo and songs from The Beautiful South and the Housemartins.
