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.

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

A number of years have now passed since singer/guitarist Keith James transfixed the UK with his stunningly beautiful series of concerts entitled The Songs of Nick Drake. Keith was the first artist ever to bring this fragile and intriguing music to theatres in its pure live concert form. The end result has been over a decade of highly acclaimed concerts amounting to thousands of shows in venues in the UK and across Europe.
