'Hitchcock sounds more energized and vibrant than he has in decades' UNCUT
Robyn Hitchcock is one of England's most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician's musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock's father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).
Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.
Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’.
JESSICA LEE MORGAN
The daughter of Mary Hopkin and Tony Visconti, Jessica Lee Morgan delivers her own meld of acoustic folk-rock with a hint of Americana.
Jessica plays as if to a party at home. Audience participation is firmly encouraged. Expect forthright honesty with a dose of humour, delivered with strong vocals, acoustic guitar, foot percussion and partner Christian Thomas on bass.
