Day not done for the songs of Nick Drake- celebration of his life and music

Singer songwriter Nick Drake went almost unnoticed during his short life.

The painfully shy guitarist struggled to perform live and sank into a deep depression.

After releasing three virtually ignored albums, Nick died aged just 26 from an overdose of anti-depressants.

But in the years since his death his music has attracted growing recognition.

To mark what would have been his 65th birthday this month, Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds is presenting a celebration of his life and music.

It will be screening the short documentary A Skin Too Few: the Days of Nick Drake this weekend with music performed live by London-based folk musicians Glaciers and Lowpines.

The event is on Sunday, June 16 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced from £6.50-£8.50, are available by calling 0113 2752045 or from www.hydeparkpicturehouse.co.uk
