Description

Featuring Danny Thompson, Vashti Bunyan, Green Gartside, Teddy Thompson, Krystle Warren, Robyn Hitchcock & more

Undoubtedly one of the most influential English singer-songwriters of the last 50 years, Nick Drake found little mainstream success during his lifetime; however, since his untimely death at the age of 26, his fragile acoustic, autumnal music has touched the hearts of millions of people. This very special evening, curated by his producer Joe Boyd, features original orchestrations arranged by Robert Kirby, who passed away very recently. Also featured is Danny Thompson, the legendary bassist who played on many of Drake’s recordings, who anchors the house band along with special guest artists including Vashti Bunyan, Green Gartside Teddy Thompson, Krystle Warren & Robyn Hitchcock who will celebrate the music through modern reinterpretations of his timeless songs.
