Live Entertainment



























Clive Rudd


Like many youngsters growing up in the early sixties I was heavily influenced

by The Beatles and got my first guitar when I was 13. I learnt to play using Bert Weedon’s “Play in a Day“ book, as many youngsters did in the 50’s and 60’s, including John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

I joined my first band when still at school and then moved into folk music in the early seventies.

After being in and out of music for several years I went semi- professional in 1987 in a duo called “STUDD “

with my great friend Dave Stott. After 3 years Dave turned fully professional and I recruited a female singer called Jennie Kent and we performed together as “DREAM TICKET “for the next seven years.

After a long break in 2014 I decided to have a go at being a solo performer using backing tracks behind my vocals and guitar. Five years later and it’s going very well.


I still love the Beatles and perform their songs together with other classics mainly from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
