    One of the most singular modern English folk songwriters, the absolutely incredible Richard Dawson performs for Moving On Music in Belfast's Black Box on November 23, for the first time accompanied by a full band.

    Richard Dawson has been described by The Guardian as the 'English folk equivalent of Captain Beefheart's deconstruction of the blues'. No small feat for the rootsy, imperfect, heartfelt - without ever breaking into cliché - singer-songwriter, who has gained some impressive, reputable fans in the last few years, including the likes of Stewart Lee. Check out this incredible session performance of 'Wooden Bag'. His new album, Peasant, painstakingly researched, draws parallels between civilisation centuries ago and ourselves and comes with certified acclaim. Check out 'Ogre'.

    Tickets cost £15, or £10 concession from Moving On Music. Doors open at 8pm.
