"A trip back to when the acoustic guitar became the weapon of choice for the young rebels of the sixties…"
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 and his wife Mocy, the flat was an afterhours hang-out for the legends who played at Les Cousins in Soho at the height of the acoustic explosion in swingin’ sixties London.
All while people like Paul Simon, Marc Bolan and Sandy Denny were dropping in to jam, a young boy, Roy’s son Nick, was absorbing the sounds and the vibe of the counterculture that would have a huge influence on his life and later career.
The 58 Fordwych Road show runs over two halves. The first will see Nick delve into that great era of songs he heard direct from the greats when growing up. Then in the second Nick will trace the journey of how these luminary figures’ music evolved and helped shape popular music beyond the sixties and revisit the eternal themes that run from then to now in songs of his own fine repertoire.
