Richard Dawson

theatre

The black-humour bard of Newcastle returns with his poetic hard-hitting and unflinchingly honest blend of traditional English folk music, sacred harp-kissed North Country blues, jazzy psych-folk, and progressive rock.

His are portraits of human beings struggling with recognisable (and dare we say it, relatable) concerns, conflicts and desires, each reminding us that tragedy and gallows humour are not mutually exclusive, and that the magical can sit next to the mundane.

Driven forward by exhilarating guitar flurries, Qawwali handclaps and bursts of choral ferocity, his songs sustain a momentum worthy of the lyrics' urgent subject matter.
