58 Fordwych Road Tour
Nick Harper is one the UK’s best kept musical secrets. For over two decades, he has been dazzling audiences, reviewers & fellow artists alike with his heady mix of virtuosity, boyish charm, showmanship & sheer bravado. An imagination bursting with ideas has seen Nick release 11 solo albums to critical acclaim, earning a Number 1 spot in the charts with the seminal hit ‘Blue Sky Thinking’.
58 Fordwych Road is an all new show that centres around a living room of up-and-coming singer-songwriter Roy Harper, his wife Mocy and his young son Nick in a small flat in Kilburn, London in the mid-1960s. The flat was an after-hours hang out for the legends, who played at Les Cousins in Soho at the height of the acoustic explosion in swingin’ sixties London - people like Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, John Renbourn, Paul Simon, Marc Bolan and Sandy Denny.
In this unique, one-off show Nick plays tribute to the time, the place and to the music that became the centre of everything for him and the rest of this ‘family’. In the first half of the show Nick will delve into the deluge of songs he heard direct from the greats when growing up. In the second he will trace the journey of how these luminary figures’ music evolved and helped shape popular music beyond the 60’s and revisit the eternal themes that run from then to now in songs of his own fine repertoire.
