'58 Fordwych Road
58 Fordwych Road is an all-new show from Nick Harper 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 & his wife Mocy.
The flat was an after-hours hang-out for the legends who played at Les Cousins in Soho at the height of the acoustic explosion in swingin’ sixties London. People like Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, John Renbourn, Paul Simon, Marc Bolan, Sandy Denny & others dropped in, to drop out, jam & try new tunes.
But, all along, there was someone else there… a toddler, part of the family, inhaling the music & absorbing the vibe; Roy’s young son, Nick Harper.
Nick later carved out his own career in music, but in this unique & one-off show he plays tribute to the time, the place & to the music that became the centre of everything for him & the rest of this ‘family’.
The show runs over two halves. The first will see Nick delve into the songs he heard direct from the greats when growing up.
In the second, Nick will trace the journey of how these luminary figures’ music evolved and helped shape popular music beyond the Sixties.
