Helen and Paul Bytheway, married couple from Manchester will be appearing at Skye Bridge studios on 21st December with a suitably festive live music show.
The Retrosettes full band have had an interesting musical history so far. In 2016 they had a simple YouTube clip that was seen by Italian film director Paolo Sorrentino. After watching the live performance, he cast the band to feature in the opening scene of his film 'Youth', joining Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel in the first shots of the movie. Their version of Candi Staton's 'You Got The Love' became the title track of the film. Due to the popularity of the picture in many European countries, The Retrosettes were able to tour Europe with the likes of Simply Red playing to sell out crowds of over ten thousand. They went on to release their first album through Universal Germany and Live Nation, which became album of the week on various national German radio stations.
As an acoustic duo, Paul and Helen have toured the world with their music. The pair have an eclectic taste in music, but the one genre they both love is Christmas music!! On 21st Dec expect classic Christmas songs from Elton John, Shakin’ Stevens, Band Aid and Wizzard, as well as some traditional classics. This will be a night of fun, singing and getting yourselves truly into the Christmas spirit.
