Nick Hart

Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis.
Sunday August 24, 8pm.

NICK HART is an award-winning singer and multi-instrumentalist whose 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.

 

Nick has released three solo albums, Nick Hart Sings Eight English Folk Songs (2017), Nick Hart Sings Nine English Folk Songs (2019), and the predictably titled Nick Hart Sings Ten English Folk Songs (2022), all to critical acclaim.

 

His latest release, recorded during the first lockdown of 2020, is a departure from the stripped back, live approach of Nick's first two albums. 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 by harmonium, lyre, viols and a host of percussion and woodwind, bringing to the fore the nuances in mode and meter that make these songs so special.

 

“Uncluttered, great singing that reminds me of the very best English roots singers... this is the real deal.” - Mike Harding
