Richard Dawson & Band

Richard Dawson & Band

Thursday, 20 February 2020, 7.00pm

A singular voice, part savant-genius, part court jester, his music echoing with voices past, present and future, Richard Dawson is a musician like no other.

Returning to Belfast this February, the black-humoured bard of Newcastle recently released his sixth solo album ‘2020’. Where the critically-acclaimed predecessor Peasant (2017) explored bygone territories, 2020 is an utterly contemporary state-of-the-nation study – bleak, funny, tender and cutting.

It’s all too easy to describe an artist as peerless but with Richard Dawson, it really is the case. He is genuinely one of the most affecting performers you will ever see, and we are delighted to welcome him and band back to Belfast this February. Come along!

“You’ll likely not hear a more singular or, indeed, better record this year” – The Quietus

“Dawson rewards you generously, with kitchen-sink realism, a psychedelic take on fable, and an almost pugilistic sense of compassion” – The Observer
