Keith James

A haunting and immaculately crafted concert

The Songs of Nick Drake

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

 

Richard Thompson, Roy Harper, Sandy Denny, Al Stewart, Vashti Bunyan, John Martyn and Bert Jansch.

 

Nick Drake is the most revered of all this country’s songwriters. He recorded three Albums 1969 - 1972 but was almost entirely unknown in his day. After his death in 1974, aged 26, his music almost disappeared into obscurity. Now, a massive resurgence of interest and a worldwide re-evaluation of his genius, Nick Drake has become a National treasure.

 

A number of years have now passed since singer/guitarist Keith James paralysed the whole country with his stunningly beautiful series of concerts entitled The Songs of Nick Drake. Keith was the first artist ever to bring this fragile and intriguing music to theatres across the UK in its pure live concert form. The end result has been over a decade of highly acclaimed concerts amounting to thousands of shows in venues in the UK and across Europe including all of Nick’s Schools and Colleges – even Glastonbury Festival.

 

‘Meticulous dissection of Nick Drake’ idiosyncratic guitar techniques handled with surgical precision’ Northern Sky

 

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’  The Independent

 

‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’  Sunday Times
