Richard Hawley will open for Paul Weller when he headlines Bedford Park this summer.

The highly respected songwriter was added to the show by the organizers of the concert in Bedford Park.

Hawley started out as a member of Britpop favorites The Longpigs before becoming the guitarist for Pulp.

He has since pursued an impressive and diverse solo career spanning two decades.

With eight studio albums to his name, two Mercury Music Prize nominations and a BRIT Award nomination for Best British Male, Richard Hawley is widely recognized as one of the UK’s greatest songwriters.

Signed to respected labels such as Mute Records and Parlophone, Hawley’s albums have been both critically acclaimed and commercially successful.

Four reached the UK top 10, including his most recent, 2019’s Further, which reached number three in the UK charts.

As a live performer Hawley has supported REM, Nancy Sinatra and performed with Elbow at Glastonbury.

He has written several film scores, created an award-winning musical, produced the Sheffield band Hoggsboy and worked as a session musician for Jarvis Cocker, All Saints and Hank Marvin.

Hawley will take the stage ahead of Weller on three dates – at Hop Farm in Kent on June 18, Lincoln Showground on July 2 and Bedford Park on July 30.
