Keith James in Concert

The Songs of Nick Drake

Nick Drake is the most revered and loved of all this country’s singer/songwriters. He recorded three cherished albums between 1969 and 1972, but was almost entirely unknown in his day. After his tragic death in 1974, aged only 26, his music almost disappeared into obscurity. Now, thanks to a massive resurgence of interest and a worldwide re-evaluation of his genius, Nick Drake has become a national treasure.

For over a decade, singer and guitarist Keith James has amazed audiences with his stunningly beautiful and highly acclaimed ‘The Songs of Nick Drake’ concert series. He was the first artist ever to bring this fragile and intriguing music to theatres in its pure live concert form, with over 1500 shows in the UK, Ireland, Holland, France, Italy and Spain, and even Glastonbury Festival.

This concert begins with an introductory set of timeless songs by brilliant songwriters – all contemporary with Nick Drake - Richard Thompson, Roy Harper, Sandy Denny, Al Stewart, Vashti Bunyan, John Martyn and Bert Jansch. Also featured are poems by William Blake, which Keith James has set to guitar arrangements based on Nick’s unique style.
