Strange Face: Adventures With a Lost Nick Drake Recording @ Arlington Arts
May 17 @ 8:00 pm

Michael Burdett discovered the recording in a skip in the 1970s. Thirty years later he shared it in an extraordinary way. Travelling all over the UK, he stopped strangers and photographed them listening to the track on headphones. Along with the tattoo artists, mountaineers, nurses and shopkeepers, he bumped into many famous faces, including Martin Freeman, Ross Noble, Fearne Cotton, Noel Fielding, Billy Bragg and Sir Tom Stoppard.

A quirky, funny and poignant award-winning solo show. The Times newspaper’s top pick of the Edinburgh Fringe two years running. You don’t need to know anything about Nick Drake to warm to this show. It’s a celebration of music, photography, life, coincidences and the legacy of one of the most influential singer songwriters of the last fifty years. A truly compelling experience that will make you laugh and cry.
