Robyn Hitchcock

After giving a strumming hand to Graham Coxon and his Power Acoustic Ensemble at the Barbican Hall last November, psych folk veteran, Robyn Hitchcock will headline his own show on at the end of the month.

Joined by his now inseparable mate, Coxon, as well as Liverpudlian folkstress Kathryn Williams and Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall, Hitchcock will setup home at the Southbank Centre on Saturday 30th January for an evening of sonic recollection of his Disko Bay expedition in 2008, when, accompanied by a collective of forty climate-change- conscious international artists, journalists and scientists, he explored Cape Farewell, Greenland; which, presumably was the inspiration for his sixteenth studio album (as a solo artist), 'Goodnight Oslo', released in February '09, featuring Peter Buck of R.E.M as well as members of the bands, Young Fresh Fellows, The Decemberists and Ministry.

Tickets for Robyn Hitchcock's Maritime Evening, as it is called, cost £20.00, with a limited 50% discount available to those entitled to concessions, available from

Robyn will also be in the capital on 22nd January as part of the Barbican's 'Way to Bliue' Nick Drake tribute night, featuring Danny Thompson, Vashti Bunyan, Green Gartside, Lisa Hannigan, Scott Matthews, Teddy Thompson, Krystle Warren and many more.
