Richard Dawson

— Fiddlers
Richard Dawson with full band
time:20:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Richard Dawson is back in June with a heart-bursting triumph of a new album called 'Peasant', and he's coming to Bristol to perform it - accompanied for the first time by a band of kindred musical wanderer-warriors, including violinist Angharad Davies and assorted members of Newcastle's fervently creative musical subterranea.

Joining us to celebrate will be Glaswegian deregulated guitar pop group Still House Plants and DJ Fielding Hope (Cafe OTO).

Those fortunate few who witnessed Richard Dawson's acoustic shows deep in Redcliffe Caves last December will recall the usual fiery broth of Dawson catalogue and a cappella folk favourites tinctured with some previously unheard material: those new songs, reduced down to quivering-flame fragility in the caves, take their place on 'Peasant', and in the new live show, amidst a full-blooded, full-banded set of anthems for what Richard calls "a society which is at odds with itself and has great sickness in it, and perhaps doesn’t take responsibility – blame going in all the wrong directions”.

In the context of 'Peasant' the society in question happens to be the pre-mediaeval North Eastern kingdom of Bryneich (450-780AD), but he could just as easily be singing of the here and now...and let's face it, who else is going to save us but Richard Dawson?
