Saturday March 7th – 7pm to 11pm
Across four decades Ben Watt has maintained a committed forwardlooking course, from the ardent echo-drenched folk of his early solo work with Robert Wyatt, through seventeen years as musical mainspring and co-lyricist in the best-selling Everything But The Girl with Tracey Thorn – and ten at the helm of his smart electronic label Buzzin’ Fly – to his recent moving non-fiction and mid-life solo albums, the awardwinning ‘Hendra’ (2014) and ‘Fever Dream’ (2016).
New album ‘Storm Damage’ (out January 2020) is no exception. Sonically adventurous, lyrically detailed and engaged, the album – written and produced by Watt – is a personal journey through anxiety and change cut through with an insistent defiance.
Expect songs, improvisation and stories from across his career as Watt performs with his current band.
