Unit 23 Live

'2 Headed Beast' - Rev Hammer & Nick Harper with Samuel Ryan and Connor Walsh.
Rev Hammer is s seasoned artist who has worked with The Levellers and New Model Army to create the definitive folk opera, 'Freeborn John' that has sold thousands of records and toured theatres across the UK. His new album SKALD features Nick Harper on guitar, backing vocals and production.
Nick Harper is the son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper. To call Nick a superlative singer/songwriter could put his highly lauded guitar talent in the shade, and to call him a guitarist's guitarist might slight his distinctive, soulful voice and passionate songs. Not forgetting the wild ride that is one of his live shows - from personal introspection to biting political satire via a charmingly caustic wit that would make Groucho Marx proud. His award winning shows at the Edinburgh Fringe are legendary and he is playing a run at the Edinburgh Festival in August Nick's other recent work has seen him appear in the studio alongside Lana Del Ray playing on her cover of Leonard Cohen's hit Chelsea Hotel no 2 from her acclaimed 2014 album Ultraviolence as well as featuring on recordings by Newton Faulkner.
Rev and Nick will be joined on stage by Samuel Ryan and Connor Walsh to perform tracks from Rev Hammer's new album Skald, in addition to songs from their extensive back catalogue.
A rare opportunity to catch these seasoned solo artists performing live
