Cloudbusting presents - The Kate Bush Songbook

'The Song Book is a more intimate take on the many hits  of Kate Bush and a chance for us to explore some of her lesser-known, more mysterious songs,' explains Michael. 'As a child learning her music on the piano I was mesmerised by her melodies and chords, the like of which I'd never heard before. Her recordings use instruments and musicians from around the world, but it all starts with just Kate, her imagination and her piano. It is this essence we're trying to get back to with the Song Book.'

'Kate's vocal and lyrical experimentation is so strong, so powerful, that you can't help but fall under its spell,' says Mandy. 'The intimacy of this special show gives me an even stronger emotional bond with the music. I love exploring her more obscure work, songs such as A Coral Room and Kashka from Baghdad.'

'Cloudbusting' have performed on stage with original members of Kate's own band and recreated the whole of 1985's groundbreaking 'Hounds of Love' album with guest musicians from all over the country, including the London Bulgarian Choir and members of Irish folk-rockers Mad Dog Mcrea.

'Her vocals were so good, I could have been listening to Kate herself!' says Preston Heyman, Kate's studio and tour drummer
