Folk in the Foyer: Nick Hart
Nick Hart is a folk singer deeply rooted in the English tradition. His rich voice tells old tales in songs rescued from oblivion 100 years ago - stories of press-gangs, bold highwaymen, greasy cooks and vanishing rivers.
Described as 'The real deal' by Mike Harding, his desire to preserve the nuances of traditional singing informs his minimal approach to accompaniment, songs are delivered with a great emphasis on storytelling. His repertoire, drawn largely from his native East Anglia, reflect his understanding of both the depth & breadth of material within the English tradition - and he is fast acquiring a reputation as an engaging and entertaining performer.
Nick's "absolutely excellent" (FRUK) first solo album "Eight English Folk Songs" was released in 2017, his second is expected in early 2019. Come & hear him play!
