Event Details

Richard Dawson presents a very special solo set featuring material from his celebrated last album 2020 stripped down to its raw guitar-and-voice essence, plus live favourites taken from his back catalogue of albums including Nothing Important, The Glass Trunk and Peasant. 2020 was the sixth solo studio album from the black-humoured bard of Newcastle, an utterly contemporary state-of-the-nation study, that uncovers a tumultuous and bleak time.

Special guests Landless sing unaccompanied traditional songs from Irish, Scottish, English and American traditions in close four-part harmony. Their repertoire features songs of love, death and lamentation, as well as work songs, shape-note hymns and more recently penned folk songs. The band are currently working on a long-awaited follow-up to their acclaimed 2018 debut album, Bleaching Bones.
