Adventures with a lost Nick Drake recording
Times Top Pick of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe show about a lost Nick Drake recording.
Writer and performer Michael Burdett discovered the recording in a skip in the 1970s. Thirty years later, he decided to share it in an extraordinary way. He set off round the country offering strangers the opportunity to hear it in exchange for being photographed. Out of this came a collection of photos and stories from people all over Britain including Billy Bragg, Tom Stoppard, Fearne Cotton, Martin Freeman and Noel Fielding.
The result is a quirky, funny and poignant award-winning solo show – a celebration of life, coincidences and the legacy of singer-songwriter Nick Drake.
