|The Songs of Nick Drake
Nick Drake is the most revered and truly 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. After his tragic death in 1974 aged only 26 his music almost disappeared into obscurity. Now, thanks to a massive resurgence of interest on a worldwide scale, re-evaluating his Life and his genius, Nick Drake has become a National treasure.
An important book, Remembered for a While, has just been released, written by his elder Sister, Gabrielle Drake. This expansive volume throws light on many shadowy corners of mystery and supposition.
A number of years have now passed since Singer/Guitarist Keith James paralysed the whole Country with The Songs of Nick Drake. This new concert will have, as far as can be possible, a fresh and rewarding setlist.
Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear The Independent
a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves Acoustic Magazine
