The Unthanks are performing How The Wild Wind Blows at the Forum Barrow on Sunday 7 May at 7.30 pm
Molly Drake, mother of Nick Drake, and poet and songwriter in her own right, made recordings at home during the 1950s with the help of her husband, and though never released at the time, share plenty of common ground with her celebrated son’s – charming and bittersweet, yet dark and pensive. In the eyes of the Mercury-nominated Unthanks, Molly’s work is extraordinary enough to rank alongside and independently of Nick’s.
In addition to the live re-imaginings by The Unthanks the audio-visual concert will feature film footage of Molly Drake, and her poetry, recorded and spoken by daughter Gabrielle Drake.
