If he was in an RPG he'd be a bard.¬†Richard Dawson¬†sprouted out of the Newcastle avant-garde scene like a medieval storyteller, his guitar spindlings and hear-ye howls inviting listeners to gather 'round his soap box. He's been an improvising noise...read more »

Hen Ogledd
Free Humans

Hen Ogledd is the kind of supergroup that we celebrate around these parts, comprising as it does the talents of Richard Dawson, Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington. 'Free Humans' is their second album and has an unsurprisingly eclectic range of influences - everything from ABBA to medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen, surreal pop star Hannah Diamond to artist Agnes Martin. Lovely old job.

Richard Dawson
2020

Despite album artwork and a title that seem like they belong to an Ed Sheeran record, '2020' in fact belongs to the UK's other great singer songwriter slash troubadour. I am of course talking about the wonderful Richard Dawson, who has helped drag the UK folk tradition into 2020 and beyond. 

Hen Ogledd
Mogic

Hen Ogledd is, if you remember, the project started by folk maverick Richard Dawson alongside harpist Rhodri Davies. Here, they are joined by Sally Pilkington and Dawn Bothwell to make music which, if you believe the Guardian (and often it's a good idea not to) sounds more like electro-pop than the improvised folk you might expect.   

Richard Dawson
Peasant

The new album from Richard Dawson is a notable new epic from the Tyneside master, featuring more guest musicians than ever before. Peasant’s songs are all set in the pre-medieval north-east, with each title naming a figure: ‘Weaver’, ‘Herald’, ‘Beggar’. It’s the most fully-fledged work yet by Dawson, and it's out on Weird World.

Richard Dawson
Nothing Important

'Nothing Important' is the new record from Newcastle's great warped folkie, Richard Dawson. You never know what you're going to get with this maverick -- huge, boisterous vocal chanting or ornate guitar compositions -- but this record sees him stretch out into the long-form, offering a rare few tracks that document vignettes about life in sixteen minute bursts. 'Nothing Important' includes a song about the first time Dawson got pissed. Wicked. It's kinda like the super avant-garde version of 'Benji'.
