REMEMBERED FOR A WHILE – THE MUSIC OF NICK DRAKE

Rob will be contributing to a special evening performance of songs by Nick Drake this April 12th at 8pm at St George’s Brandon Hill in Bristol. Curated by Rob’s old Automatic Dlamini, and PJ Harvey colleague John Parish, the evening will feature many of Nick Drake’s most treasured songs, performed by Aldous Harding, Nadine Khouri & H Hawkline, and with some of these arranged for string quartet and alto flute by Rob. Also, exclusively for the event, Rob has written a short string quartet piece to accompany a recording of Nick Drake himself reciting some of his own poetry.
