With Keith James

A haunting and immaculately crafted concert

This concert begins with an introductory set of timeless songs by brilliant songwriters – all contemporary with Nick Drake.

Nick Drake is the most revered and loved of all 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 and a worldwide re-evaluation of his genius, Nick Drake has become a National treasure. An important book, Remembered for a while has been recently released, written by his elder Sister Gabrielle Drake. This volume throws light on almost everything attributed to Nick’s brief career as a songwriter and recording artist as well as on many corners of mystery and supposition.

Also featured are two poems by William Blake which Keith has set to guitar arrangements based on Nick’s unique style.
