Elkie Brooks to dazzle with greatest hits at Weston-super-Mare’s Playhouse
PUBLISHED: 14:00 16 March 2017
An English rock and blues songstress will perform her biggest hits at one of Weston-super-Mare’s top music venues at the start of April.
Elkie Brooks rose to fame in 1964 aged just 15, when she recorded a cover of Etta James’ Something’s Got A Hold On Me.
She went on to become the frontwoman for Dada and Vinegar Joe in the 1970s.
The singer has since been nominated twice for Brit Awards and has reached the number two spot in the UK albums chart with Pearls.
Brooks is known for her powerful, husky voice and hit singles such as Pearl’s A Singer, Lilac Wine and Don’t Cry Out Loud.
The star – who is often referred to as the British queen of blues – will launch the fifth decade of her career with her newest tour.
Elkie has had more than a dozen UK hit singles and entered the Guinness Book of Records for the highest number of albums ever released by a British female artist, with 20 smash-hit records under her belt.
Despite 50 years in the music business, Elkie is still fighting fit and looking to reach new heights in her career.
Elkie Brooks will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, Weston, at 7.30pm on April 1.
