Andy Davies & Kirsty Newton – The Scott Walker Songbook
June 7 @ 8:00 pm - 9:40 pm
Scott Walker is one of popular music’s most fascinating and elusive artists. Singer/comedian Andy Davies has been obsessed with him for years and wants to share this devotion with you. Scott wont perform his songs anymore but Andy will. He has made it his calling to share the music of the godlike genius through the creation of a brand-new show debuting at Bath Fringe Festival.
Part stand up and part tribute to one of the greatest singers in popular music, The Scott Walker Songbook is an intimate, touching and funny evening for both Scott Walker fans and newcomers alike.
We invite you to join Andy and pianist Kirsty Newton as they shine a light on some of the wonderful songs of a rich and varied career. The Scott Walker Songbook doesnt just stick to the 60s classics and includes songs from The Walker Brothers as well as Scotts more recent, avant-garde albums. On the night you can expect to hear include Plastic Palace People, Montague Terrace (In Blue), The Electrician and Farmer in the City.
Andy Davies is a character comedian and singer whose alter ego is the showbiz legend Quint Fontana.
Kirsty Newton is a musician, songwriter, arranger and performer whose credits include Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen, Jess Robinson’s Mighty Voice, The Distraction Club and Kirsty’s Poptastic Piano Singalong.
