We regret that this performance is postponed. However, we are pleased to announce that this event will now take place on 25 Apr 2021. All existing tickets will be valid for the new date.
Statement from Richard Dawson:
We’d been looking forward to seeing you and sharing music over the coming months but then coronavirus halted everything. I hope you’re all keeping safe and sane. We move forward with hope. We’re rescheduling dates where possible and hope to see you there, on the opposite bank of this murky river.
We are grateful for your patience and support during this time. We look forward to sharing the joy of music with you again soon and will update our website with information, announcements and plans as they develop.
Richard Dawson, the black-humoured bard of Newcastle, returns to release his sixth solo album 2020. Where critically-acclaimed predecessor Peasant (2017) gave a voice to the citizens of the ancient early medieval northern kingdom of Bryneich via a set of narratives as bawdy as Chaucer and as epic and bloody as Beowulf, 2020 is an utterly contemporary state-of-the- nation study, that uncovers an equally tumultuous and even bleaker time. Here is an island country in a state of flux; a society on the edge of mental meltdown. This is England today.
