Information


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 show runs 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.
‘Roy’s boy? He plays like a demon.’ Jello Biafra
‘Hey, the boy is good!’ Robert Plant
‘That boy is too good.’ Bert Jansch
