The legendary Chip Taylor, the singer-songwriter responsible for penning both ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Angel Of The Morning,’ announces a number of UK dates in support of his Little Prayers Trilogy triple album released in January on Train Wreck records.

UNCUT Magazine gave the album 9/10 and CMP made it their album of the month with a 5***** review.
Chip will be performing as a duet with longtime friend and accompanist John Platania who is best known for his work with Van Morrison on four albums including Moondance.
