Dean Friedman
Singer-songwriter Dean Friedman will stop off at Retro Staycations in Ryde to perform a 95-minute set as part of his 2022 UK Tour on Friday 20th May.

The performance will take place on Jack Up Event’s new silver bullet Airstream stage, as seen at recent Ticket to Ryde events over both the Easter and May bank holiday weekends.

Friedman will be performing songs from throughout his 4-decade career, including familiar radio hits and fan favourites drawn from his 8 studio albums. His extended set will include his chart-topping hits: Ariel, Lucky Stars, Lydia McDonald’s Girl and more.

Friedman composes and produces music soundtracks for TV and film, including the music to the hit Central TV series BOON, NBC’s Eerie Indiana, Nickelodeon’s Nick Arcade, and the indie horror classic, I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle. He’s also published tome on the art and craft of song writing titled, The Songwriter’s Handbook, based on song writing workshops and masterclasses he’s conducted at universities and music conservatories around the world, including L.I.P.A. (the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts).

Following his 40th Anniversary Tour, Friedman is returning to the stage armed with insightful and compelling, true-to-life ‘story songs’: songs of pathos and humour that deal with family, friends, neighbours, work and the seemingly trivial, yet ultimately essential, stuff of everyday life.

Tickets are available at £26 plus agent booking fee. Gates open at 19:00; show starts at 20:00.

Free parking is available on site. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to sit on. Toilet facilities provided.
