The word ‘timeless’ was invented for Burt Bacharach. Not only do his compositions shine just as brightly today as they did over fifty years ago but also, at the age of 91, Bacharach still plays with astounding skill. A few more impressive facts: six Grammys, three Oscars and 73 US Top 40 hits. His influence effortlessly stretches from last century to this one in which Bacharach recorded albums with Ronan Keating and Trijntje Oosterhuis, among others. Four years ago he proved that his irresistible songs transcend generations by sending an audience of 100,000 people into raptures at the British Glastonbury pop festival. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t smile when hearing evergreens like (They Long To Be) Close To You, Walk On By and The Look Of Love. You’ll undoubtedly hear them at the festival.
