Local favourite and acclaimed singer-songwriter/guitarist Nick Harper will be playing St Peter’s Church in Marlborough on Saturday 30 March.

In what is promised to be a new, uniquely styled, acoustically driven album and live show, Nick explores the past, present and future in his own singular way.

People can expect everything from the emotional to the political, from witty to virtuosic; the singular to the universal.

Nick's new album, Tempus Fugitive, follows up recent successful sojourns back in time to explore swinging 60s London (58 Fordwych Rd), 19th century Fantasy literature and 1980s West Country romance (Phantastes) and an epic poem lost in time (A Wiltshire Tale), and manages to spin thematic elements of them all into a dizzying, fluid and funky LP.

Joining Nick as support on the night is Andrew Rumsey. The singer-songwriter and Anglican Bishop of Ramsbury, whose work as lead bishop for church and cathedral buildings has fed into his writing on the relationship between theology and place, will be playing some songs from the acclaimed 'Evensongs' released earlier this year on Gare du Nord Records.

Doors open at 7.30pm. Andrew Rumsey will be performing at 8pm and Nick Harper at 9pm.

Tickets are £16 advanced and are available via NICK HARPER | HARPERSPACE |
