‘A WILTSHIRE TALE’ – written and presented by Nick Harper
May 11 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£10
THE BARD OF WILTSHIRE CELEBRATES THE COUNTY IN SPOKEN WORD AND LIVE MUSIC
Written and performed by Nick Harper, A Wiltshire Tale is a journey through Wiltshire’s history, landscape and wildlife. Depicted through the voices of three immortal characters, this one-man show bears witness to this most magical of counties in spoken word, poetry and live music.
From sell-out tours to a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival run, Nick enters his third decade as a performer with a vitality that could put younger musicians to shame.
Artists and producers as diverse as Squeeze, Lana Del Ray, Newton Faulkner, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), The Levellers, Jakko Jakszyk (Level 42, King Crimson) and legendary producer Tchad Blake have collaborated with him. This is not a man easily pigeonholed into existing musical genres; Nick is very much blazing his own trail.
