Evesham Arts Centre Presents NICK HART Folk in the Foyer
8pm Thu 30th May
Rising young folk singer Nick Hart brings a fresh voice to traditional English folk song on 30th May.
Nick Hart is a singer deeply rooted in the English tradition – a rich-voiced young man singing old-found ‘storytelling’ songs. His sings long-established songs of press-gangs & robbers, railway-building & crooked cooks. Described as ‘the real deal’ by Mike Harding, his desire to preserve the nuances of traditional singing informs his minimal approach to accompaniment
Nick’s repertoire is drawn largely from his native East Anglia and shows his understanding of the depth & breadth of material in the English tradition. He is fast acquiring a reputation as an engaging and entertaining performer. His “absolutely excellent” (FRUK) first solo album “Eight English Folk Songs” was released in 2017, his second is expected in early 2019.
