THE CERYS & LARRY SHOW!

The Welsh songstress and the harmonica ace's collaboration to be shown in new pop show this week...

CERYS MATTHEWS’ much talked-about duet with 87-year-old harmonica ace LARRY ADLER is finally to be aired on TV this week.

The Catatonia singer taped a performance of ‘Young At Heart’ with Adler back in April, and the unlikely pairing is to be screened for the first time on HTV Wales on Tuesday night (June 12).

Cerys and Larry – who performed alongside George Gershwin as a lad – were also interviewed together for new music magazine show, ‘This Way Up’. Cerys famously admitted on camera: “I prefer older men!” at the filming at The Pop Factory, a converted TV studio in the Welsh valleys.

As peviously reported on NME.COM, the Princess of Welsh pop has already duetted with 60-year-old Welsh crooner Tom Jones on the jazz standard ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ as well as 34-year-old Scouse indie pop merchant Tommy Scott of Space on ‘The Ballad Of Tom Jones’. Adding Larry to the creation makes a combined age of 213!

This time, Cerys sings while Larry plays harmonica to their song, a hit for both Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, backed by a 16-piece orchestra.

The programme is broadcast at 11.35pm on Tuesday night across the HTV Wales network. There are currently no plans to network the show across the UK.
