Music The Sherling Studio 2 hours

Overview

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’.

The 58 FORDWYCH ROAD shows run over two halves. The first will see Nick delve into the deluge of  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 & helped shape popular music beyond the sixties & revisit the  eternal themes that run from then to now in songs of his own fine repertoire.
