With the songs of Nick Drake - a haunting and immaculately crafted concert
Nick Drake is the most revered and loved of all of this country's Singer/Songwriters. He recorded three cherished Albums between 1969 and 1972 but was almost entirely unknown in his day. Now, thanks to a massive resurgence of interest and a worldwide re-evaluation of his genius Nick Drake has become a national treasure.
Nick was inducted into the Hall of Fame at the BBC Radio 2 folk awards 2018
A number of years have now passed since Singer/Guitarist Keith James paralysed the whole Country with his beautiful series of concerts entitled ‘The Songs of Nick Drake.’ He was the first artist to bring this fragile and intriguing music to live audiences. The result has now been 17 years of highly acclaimed concerts amounting to over 1500 shows in the UK, Ireland, Holland, France, Italy and Spain including all of Nick's Schools and Colleges - even Glastonbury Festival.
