Strange Face is a spoken word one-man show about a lost Nick Drake recording.
It tells the extraordinary story of how one man shared a recording no one knew existed, after a chance finding of a recording in a skip.
Since his tragic death in the mid seventies, Nick Drake’s haunting music has influenced countless artists – including Paul Weller, Kate Bush & Radiohead. But how has the discovery of a previously unheard recording touched the lives of a very special group of people: the lucky few, who were chosen to hear it?
Strange Face Adventures with a Lost Nick Drake Recording is the story of a discovered tape, a lost Nick Drake recording and how the man who found it chose to share it in an extraordinary way. Humorous and poignant ‘Strange Face’ celebrates life, coincidences and the legacy of singer songwriter Nick Drake.
