Nick HarperNick Harper: A Wiltshire Tale

A Wiltshire Tale is a journey through Wiltshire’s  history, landscape and wildlife performed by Nick Harper. Depicted through the voices of three immortal characters, in this one man show, we bear 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. It is no surprise that artists and producers as diverse as Squeeze, Lana Del Rey, 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.
