A duo who started their singing career on the streets of Southampton are excited to step on a home stage.

Father and son band The Henrys will be taking to the stage at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre on Thursday night.

This comes after the pair, both named Henrique Machado - aged 24 and 54 – were invited to play at the Cavern Club in Liverpool in August as part of International Beatles Week.

But The Henrys are excited to perform on home soil before travelling up north.

They said: “Our journey from busking to performing at venues like the Hanger Farm Arts Centre has been an incredible musical evolution.

“We are grateful for the opportunities that have allowed us to grow as musicians and connect with audiences.

“We are eagerly looking forward to our gig at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre, where we'll showcase our passion for The Beatles.

“We are really happy that we are able to do this to so many people who have supported us the last few years.”
