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.
The hit UK concert, produced by Drake's collaborator Joe Boyd, now comes to Melbourne. This very special evening will feature Danny Thompson, the legendary bassist who played on many of Drake's recordings, and who anchors the house band along with special guest artists including Vashti Bunyan, Green Gartside, Lisa Hannigan, Scott Matthews, Krystle Warren and Robyn Hitchcock. Original orchestrations are arranged by Robert Kirby. This unique collaboration of outstanding artists will celebrate Drake's music through modern reinterpretations of his timeless songs.
"Astonishing . . . spellbinding . . . rousing . . . grippingly raw."
"When the truly revelatory moment happened in this Nick Drake tribute, there wasn't a soul in the room that didn't feel it. If anything could have roused him from his eternal slumber, this was it."
"The understated but loving 'Way To Blue' gets it overwhelmingly right… (with) adoring dignity that marked the whole evening."
