Richard Dawson

About Richard Dawson

Presented as part of Celtic Connections 2018.

Rising up from the bed of the River Tyne, a voice that crumbles and soars, that is steeped in age-old balladry and finely-chiselled observations of the mundane, Richard Dawson is a skewed troubadour at once charming and abrasive.

Shambolically virtuosic guitar playing stumbles from music-hall tune-smithery to spidery swatches of noise-colour, swathed in amp static and teetering on the edge of feedback. Richards’s songs are both chuckle some and tragic, rooted in a febrile imagination that references worlds held dear and worlds unknown.

Support to be announced.

HEADING TO PLATFORM FROM GLASGOW CITY CENTRE? A bus will leave Mono (12 King’s Court, Glasgow) at 6.30pm and return after each Celtic Connection 2018 show. A return ticket costs £5 and can be purchased in Monorail. Please email info@platform-online.co.uk to reserve a ticket.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Richard Dawson are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
