Nick’s work with English folk song is rapidly gaining him a reputation as one of the most acclaimed performers of his generation.
His considered approach to accompaniment is informed by a deep respect for the nuances of traditional song and his captivating live performances are a testament to the importance he places on story-telling.
His first two solo albums were released to critical acclaim and this event sees him performing songs from his third album ‘Nick Hart Sings Ten English Folk Songs’, recorded during the first lockdown of 2020.
Deprived of a sound engineer and locked away in a house full of strange instruments, he was afforded the time and space to explore different approaches to the accompaniment of traditional song. Nick’s distinctive guitar playing is augmented here by harmonium, lyre, viols and a host of percussion and woodwinds.
Ewan Carr, NWT Cley Marshes Visitor Centre Manager, said: “Nick’s repertoire of songs is drawn largely from his native East Anglia and I can think of nowhere more atmospheric to hear his new creations performed than with a backdrop of our beautiful, wild coastline.
“We look forward to welcoming you to NWT Cley Marshes café and visitor centre for what will be a memorable evening of music-making. Why not make a day of it, and head out onto the reserve for a wild wander before the concert begins?”
