    Richard Dawson

    The Empire Music Hall

    Belfast

    richarddaw

    The most singular modern English songwriter, the absolutely incredible Richard Dawson plays his biggest Belfast show yet at the Empire on February 20 with his band for Moving On Music.

    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 latest album, 2020, is his most acclaimed yet, unafraid to throw pop sensibility and modern day kitchen sink commentary into the heteroglot cauldron of influences. Watch the video for 'Jogging'.

    Tickets cost £17.50 from Eventbrite. Doors open at 7pm.
