Preview: Roy Harper´s 75th birthday at Royal Festival Hall

 

Radical folk icon Roy Harper has announced 4 live dates in the UK to celebrate his 75th birthday this September. The tour takes in Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and London´s Royal Festival Hall, on the 12th September, and will feature string and brass ensemble arranged by Fiona Brice.

To tie in with this significant anniversary he will begin reissuing much of his catalogue on vinyl from 2 September. The first three titles to be released are ´Flat Baroque and Berserk´, ‘Stormcock´, and ‘Lifemask’ via his own label Science Friction and distributed by PIAS.

Roy Harper is one of the few surviving singer-songwriters from the counterculture of the 60’s who is still creatively engaged in new composition and in progressing a body of work that has come to stand for a particularly single minded form of integrity.

Now officially ‘retired’, and living in a secluded corner of Ireland, Harper has recently been hailed as a key influence by a much younger generation of devoted starsailors who instinctively recognise his innovations, his refusal to compromise and his visionary world view.
