Sunday / nos Sul 1st: Nick Harper’s 58, Fordwych Road Tour: …..NICK HARPER is one the UK’s best kept musical secrets. Those who have witnessed the spellbinding,
one-man show will tell you this. A childhood growing up surrounded by the musical prowess of some of the 60’s most revered songwriters & musicians, not to mention being son of Roy Harper, along with 20 years of crafting songs & touring the land has spawned a truly one-off, original guitarist & songwriter.
58 FORDWYCH ROAD is an all new show that centres around a living room in a small flat in Kilburn, London in the mid 1960s. Then the abode of up-and-coming singer-songwriter Roy Harper & his wife Mocy. 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, Sandy Denny & others dropped in, to drop out, jam & try new tunes. But, all along, there was someone else there… a toddler, part of the family, inhaling the music & absorbing the vibe; Roy’s young son, Nick Harper. Nick later carved out his own career in music, but in this unique & one-off show he plays tribute to the time, the place & to the music that became the centre of everything for him & the rest of this ‘family’…..

Gyda chefnogaeth Bois ‘di Bennu ( rejects Bois y Frenni!)
There was a time when Welsh singer and collector Gwilym Bowen Rhys would have been known for his work in rock band Y Bandana and his sibling folk trio Plu but, after his masterful debut album of traditional and original songs, O Groth y Ddaer (From the Womb of the Earth), he was quickly considered something of a special solo artist dedicated to studying and singing songs from the Welsh tradition.
Support: Bois ‘di Bennu – Male Voice Group (rejects Bois y Frenni!) Entry / Mynediad £10-00 (£8-00 conc.) OTD / Wrth y Drws.
