50 Years Of Monumental Classics Including Mcgoohan's Blues



Renowned folk singer-songwriter Roy Harper is celebrating 50 years of classic tracks including the famed epic ‘McGoohan’s Blues’.

During a career that has spanned six decades he has enjoyed collaborations with and tributes from many of his contemporaries including Led Zepplin, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour and Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson.

In 2013 his album Man & Myth was lauded by press across the UK. Uncut said “Harper’s first album in 13 years is a magnificent, ambitious rejuvenation.”

On why he has decided to tour again, Harper said: “Partly because many of the things I wrote about in McGoohan’s Blues in 1968 are still very relevant 50 years later, and partly because my third record was a watershed moment in my recording life, it’s been long in my mind that I should dust it off and bring it on tour again.”

Harper will joined by Bill Shanley and an ensemble of musicians.
