Songs from the heart

Singer-songwriter Rob Halligan returns to the Raunds Music Festival on 2nd May in the Saxon Hall to perform songs and tell stories from his life. It's quite a story - including a period without a home, and losing his father in the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers. His songs are a mixture of world issues and our own frailty, doubts and fears in a messed up world. Big themes in Rob's songs are forgiveness and the power of love to overcome bitterness and hate. Rob has also done work for Globalcare - a charity working with refugees in Lebanon on the Syrian border.

Rob's set will include new material from his new CD Always Heading Home, as well as tracks from earlier albums. He has appeared on Songs of Praise

 He tours many churches:  “A fabulous Gig” – St Peters, Bexleyheath.

 “It was a superb evening with Rob tonight”– Reverend Tony Rindle, St Mary’s Watford.

“He displays brilliant guitar playing, gritty and inspiring songs from the heart about our real God. Don’t miss him if he comes to town!”


Rob appears at the Raunds Music Festival on Saturday 2nd May at 3.15pm. Also appearing at this concert is Clive Gregson. Clive is an accomplished singer-songwriter, musician and record producer.
