What’s On

Saturday 23 March
Nick Harper – 58 Fordwych Road

A new show that centres around a small flat in Kilburn, London in the mid-1960s. Then the abode of up-and-coming singer-songwriter Roy Harper and his wife, the flat was an after hours hangout 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 and others dropped in to drop out, jam and try new tunes. All along there was someone else there. A toddler, inhaling the music and absorbing the vibe – Roy’s young son, Nick Harper. Nick later carved out his own musical career and in this unique one-off show he plays tribute to the time, the place and the music that became the centre of everything for him and the rest of his ‘family’.

The show runs over two halves. The first will see Nick delve into the songs he heard direct from the greats when growing up. In the second Nick will trace the journey of how these luminary figures’ music evolved and helped shape popular music beyond the sixties.

Tickets: £12 advance, £13 door, £1 reduction for Friends of Calstock Arts, £8 under 21s.
