Richard Dawson at Islington Assembly Hall


Newcastle's visionary avant-troubadour and raconteur brings his apocalyptic folk storytelling and open-tuned guitar pyrotechnics to Leeds with a full band. Like a latter-day Canterbury Tales, his new album Peasant brings to life a motley crew of eleven characters, from scientist to beggar, in a broadside against a 'country of demons made flesh'. At times recalling folk outliers Comus and Robert Wyatt, it features a sonic palette far expanded from Dawson's last record, the hugely acclaimed Nothing Important. He'll be joined by musicians featured on the recording.
