"One of the finest guitarists of his generation, his soaring vocal range and propensity for epic song place him somewhere between Rufus Wainright and Jeff Buckley. Mojo

"My musical discovery of 2016" - Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

From sell-out tours to a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival run via numerous radio and TV appearances Nick 'son of Roy' Harper enters his third decade as a performer with a vitality that could put younger musicians to shame.

His impeccable musical pedigree means nothing without the skills to back it up and skills Nick has, in his virtuoso guitar playing, song-writing and signature vocal acrobatics.  Over a solo career of 9 studio albums, 2 EPs and 2 live albums - as well as the recent vinyl career retrospective - the quality of his musical output has only improved.  It is no surprise that artists and producers as diverse as Squeeze, Lana Del Rey, The Levellers, Jakko Jakszyk (Level 42, King Crimson) and legendary producer Tchad Blake have collaborated with him.  This is not a man easily pigeonholed into existing musical genres; Nick is very much blazing his own trail.

But whatever path he takes, rest assured that Nick Harper is, and will remain a musical force to be reckoned with.

Here is an opportunity to see Nick perform his guitar and vocal magic at a rare London solo concert in the intimate surroundings of Mycenae House in Blackheath.
