Roy Harper on Tour - March 2019

Celebrating 50 years of monumental classics including McGoohan's Blues…

"Partly because many of the things I wrote about in McGoohan’s Blues are still very relevant 50 years later, and partly because my third record was a watershed moment in my recording life, it’s been long in my mind that I should dust it off and bring it on tour again. I’ll be joined by Bill Shanley and an ensemble of musicians which might have to be slightly more versatile in terms of instrumentation this time, although I have to say that the players we brought out last time provided me with the best accompaniment I’ve ever had in my life. I was overjoyed with what we produced, so we’ll just have to see whether we can equal that.”

Four special shows in September 2016 with string and brass ensemble to celebrate a special anniversary…

 Bill Shanley, who played wonderfully on my last album 'Man & Myth', will join me on stage in September. I'm really
looking forward to playing with him again.

I’m also very happy to have Irish duo Ye Vagabonds performing the opening set for these shows. They remind me of my first days at ‘Les Cousins’ in Soho in 1965, where the majority of those turning up to play were from all corners of these islands. It struck me then, and it’s probably still true now, that of the four traditions, Scots, Welsh, Irish and English, the Irish was the most preserved. Perhaps the truest to it’s everyday life. I propose that Ye Vagabonds are a modern expression of a tradition that is truly robust and important to these islands. I’ll be enjoying that vibe echoing around the back stage hallways.
