Rob Halligan

Saturday Late Afternoon Concert

Once the BBC described Rob Halligan as “Bruce Springsteen having English tea with Billy Bragg” It’s been a good comparison although you could maybe invite more people along to the party, as Rob has been compared to Neil Diamond, Martyn Joseph and John Mayer.

You get the picture. There’s a lot of influence, driven by a love of music and a passion to speak to and from the heart. Rob grew up on the south coast of England, learning to play guitar after a road accident had him spend six months in hospital. With some mates he formed a string of bands and had his first spell in a studio when as the “Freak Brothers” they recorded a version of Welon Jennin’s “16 Tonnes” and performed at Worthing’s Pavilion Theatre.
