Nick Harper is one the UK’s best kept musical secrets. For over two decades his virtuoso performances have been dazzling audiences, critics and fellow artists alike. Growing up surrounded by some of the 60s most revered songwriters & musicians, not to mention being the son of Roy Harper. His twenty year career, producing 12 critically acclaimed albums, and not to mention extensive tours across the UK, has spawned a truly one-off, original guitarist & songwriter, a UK great, to be cherished & revered.
Nick's latest album, Phantastes, was recorded over lockdown, with plans to preview at the Edinburgh Festival in 2020, and tour in the autumn. However, as with all our 2020s, Covid 19 had other ideas. Not to be beaten, Nick successfully crowdfund the album, with its release coming digitally at the end of last year. A fantastic achievement, testament to the loyal following this fantastic artist has accrued down the years as an acclaimed recording artist and performer.
So the ‘Aaand…We’re Back In The Room’ Tour for Autumn 2021, will concentrate on the joy of Nick Harper himself, an acoustic guitar and songs from all of his albums down the years. It promises to be a happy run of dates across the country. Nick can't wait to be touring again, much like we can't wait to experience the privilege of having this virtuoso performer grace our stage.
