On the 26th of March this year a dream came true for Hugh Laurie. It was a dream born when he first heard Professor Longhair’s album Live On The Queen Mary. Recorded in 1975, it was to change Longhair’s life, catapulting him back into the limelight after years in the wilderness. And as Hugh says “Ever since I heard a recording of that show – my life changed too.” Now he will mark the climax of his personal musical odyssey with a tribute to the man who is his greatest inspiration. Hugh is joined by the legendary Copper Bottom Band on the same stage where Longhair delivered his master class to put on a unique, unforgettable performance. Surrounded by the art deco grandeur of this extraordinary ship and featuring Longhair favourites “Tipitina” and “Mardi Gras In New Orleans,” and Hugh’s own renditions of blues classics such as “Staggerlee,” “Junco Partner,” “Kiss Of Fire” and “Wild Honey,” this a show like no other.
