On Saturday May 11th 2024, American singer/songwriter Dean Friedman will be appearing at Woodford Village Hall as part of his 2014 UK and Ireland tour. We are really pleased he chose to appear here alongside the other venues on the tour which runs from January 12th thru August 18th, 2024, including stops in London, Manchester, Leeds, Cambridge, Belfast, Dublin, Cardiff, Bridgwater, Penzance, Rayleigh, Glasgow, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and more.

Friedman, best known to UK and Ireland audiences for his string of chart hits, Lucky Stars, Lydia, Woman of Mine, McDonald’s Girl and “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’, will be performing solo, on guitar and keyboard, featuring songs from throughout his four-decade career, including familiar, radio hits and fan favourites, drawn from his nine studio albums.

In addition to the hits and fan favourites, Friedman will be highlighting songs from his latest, critically acclaimed album, ‘American Lullaby’. The crowdfunded album, considered by dedicated fans as one of his finest, touches on a broad range of topics including: the calamitous pandemic, looming environmental disaster, racism, sexism, our fractured politics, and an intractable culture war.

“My latest album, ‘American Lullaby’,” Friedman explains, “reflects my personal take on all the crazy stuff that’s been happening in America – and around the world – for the last six years. Like all lullabies, it’s filled with tales of dark deeds and disaster, but couched in soft, gentle tones, meant to soothe and comfort the listener, while gently bracing them for the potential terrors that await.”

Invite family and friends and join Friedman for an evening of powerful, poignant and hilarious songs about the ordinary and extraordinary lives we share.
