Why not have a look round the site? The gallery has some photos to make your toes curl, not to mention ours. Under the “songs” menu there are 15 complete songs to listen to and soon a mashup of various others as well. Most of these were recorded live in the past few months with four of them in video form. In the gig reports you’ll see we’ve been quite busy. Hope to see you at one of our live gigs
Hebric is back on the music scene after quite a break ! The friendships were rekindled when we met up again in 2016 first at John’s 60th then at Dave’s 65th birthday parties. Instruments came out of their cases, songs were sung, tunes were played and much fun was had. As a result we decided to start playing again as a band. We still love chorus songs & lively tunes but also do more thoughtful stuff, including current topics.
There’s always been some confusion about the band’s name and its “ethnicity”. Let’s clear that up.
Way back in 1973 John suggested the name Tha e Breagh which means “it is fine” referring to the weather, apparently. John had found the phrase in a book and liked it. This was shortly after he’d learnt to read and he thought that was how Queen’s English was written. It wasn’t long though, before club organisers, friends and family corrupted it to “tea break”, “half brick” or worse and eventually we succumbed to pressure and changed it to Hebric. It’s as simple as that although it didn’t stop Radio Leeds announcing us as Harpic!
To find out more info about the band, especially if you want to book us for your event, you’re welcome to email Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact him on 07533 338675.
