"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.

Another great performance from Nick with a few oldies reworked in interesting ways plus a handfull of great tracks off of “lies lies lies” Entertaining as always with fantastic musicianship, great vocals and amusing banter. The venue was a little on the quiet side and not exactly packed - Maybe due to the potentially pending snow and less than ideal transport links.

Great gig ... just as expected! New material with the ‘kids’ was terrific .. a thoughtful perspective on the strange times in which we live, followed by some oldies which were ...well ... terrific!! Venue ok although ale selection not good.
