Nick Hart in Concert (live event)

— Downend Folk Club @ Frenchay Village Hall
Nick Hart headlines our first hybrid live/streaming event
time:19:30
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Come and be part of history!

Not ones to let anything stop us, we're forging ahead with our September concert... albeit in a slightly different way!

We have a maximum of 26 tickets available for you to come and be part of the audience as we record Nick Hart in concert on Friday 11th September... an event that will be streamed to a global audience the following Friday. Nick will play two full 45 minute sets with an interval in the middle.

The whole concert will be filmed, so please be aware that your view may occasionally be affected by the camera-operator.

Please note that this will be an unplugged performance in the room (this is necessary for the film) so you'll need to bring your listening ears. You'll also need to bring your own refreshments and things to drink them from, your own hand-sanitiser and a face-mask (you won't need to wear this during the performance but you will if you move around the building).

Doors open at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start. Tickets are £15 each minimum (you can pay more if you're in the fortunate position of being able to do that... this is a risk for us!). We will assume that tickets bought in multiples (e.g 2 tickets bought at the same time) are able to sit together (i.e. in a "bubble")... you MUST let us know if this is not the case.

ABOUT NICK HART

Nick is a folk singer deeply rooted in the English tradition. Raised in a family of morris dancers, Nick played instrumental music for many years before discovering his passion for traditional song. Whilst studying for an ethnomusicology degree, he began to explore the large body of recordings of traditional singers from the second half of the 20th century, and this led to several years of fevered study and many nights spent at folk clubs and festivals, honing his skills as an unaccompanied singer.

Nick's initially hardline attitude to the accompaniment of folk songs has softened over the years, but his love of the nuances of traditional singing informs his minimal guitar accompaniment, and his songs are delivered with a great emphasis on storytelling. His repertoire of songs, drawn largely from his native East Anglia, reflect his understanding of both the depth and breadth of material within the English tradition and he is fast acquiring a reputation as an engaging and entertaining performer.

2017 saw the release of his first solo album, Nick Hart Sings Eight English Folk Songs. Recorded by long-time collaborator Tom Moore, the album has been well received, being described as "one of the most rewarding and accomplished albums we've heard this year" (fRoots), "a cult classic in waiting" (Grizzly Folk), "absolutely excellent" (Folk Radio UK), and "the real deal" (Mike Harding).

Nick’s second album, entitled Nick Hart Sings Nine English Folk Songs, was released last year to further critical acclaim.
