Robyn Hitchcock + Jessica Lee Morgan
Heavy Pop presents Robyn Hitchcock + Jessica Lee Morgan
‘Hitchcock mirrors his influences with thoughtful enthusiasm while throwing his characteristic sardonic humour into the mix’. – Pitchfork With a career now spanning six decades, Robyn Hitchcock remains a truly one-of-a-kind artist –surrealist rock ’n’ roller, iconic troubadour, guitarist, poet, painter, performer. An unparalleled, deeply individualistic songwriter and stylist, Hitchcock has traversed myriad genres with humor, intelligence, and originality over more than thirty albums and seemingly infinite live performances.
From The Soft Boys’ proto-psych-punk and The Egyptians’ Dadaist pop to solo masterpieces like 1984’s milestone I Often Dream of Trains and 1990’s Eye, Hitchcock has crafted a strikingly original oeuvre rife with sagacious observation, astringent wit, recurring marine life, mechanized rail services, cheese, Clint Eastwood, and innumerable finely drawn characters real and imagined.
Robyn returns to South Street Arts Centre following his previous sold-out performance there.
