So, we promise you:
- an up-close-and-personal experience (it's big enough, but not that big)
- some great singer-songwriter-instrumentalists
- you'll get to see every slide and every hammer-on
- and every penny of your donation will go to the performer
Artists for next year's house concerts will be announced soon. We're also hoping to announce the return of one our favourite acts in late Spring, early Summer.
December 8th 2018
Singer-songwriter, harmonica player supreme, favourite collaborator of Richard Thompson, Gene Parsons, Nicky Hopkins, Dann Penn and the Eagles' Steuart Smith - as well as many more - Julian joins us in December, like a wonderful early Christmas present.
Saturday, December 8th 2018 - Julian Dawson
About Julian Dawson
Then there was the standout duet with Lucinda Williams - How Can I Sleep Without You - five albums with Iain Matthews Plainsong, an all-acoustic album (Move Over Darling) with the Eagles' Steuart Smith, an album and tour with ex-Byrds legend Gene Parsons and his ongoing audio love affair with producer and soul legend Dan Penn - who produced Julian's last solo album in 2015.
Julian’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Rosie Flores, Charlie Louvin, Rock Salt and Nails and Sean Keane, while Julian himself has appeared as singer or harmonica player with Gerry Rafferty, Glen Tilbrook, Del Amitri, Dan Penn, Iain Matthews, Richard Thompson, Benny Hill (!!) and many others.
Now in his 40th year as a writer and musician, with a growing and highly appreciative audience in many countries and constantly positive reactions at radio and in the rock, folk and country music press, Julian Dawson remains an original voice, touring and performing with undiminished vigour and continuing to chart a cheerfully eclectic course through the contemporary music scene. This year Julian released his second three-disc retrospective - Bargains Galore - which covers the years 1997 - 2017.

"Julian Dawson plays his audience like an instrument."
- Time Out (LONDON)
"What makes him so special? Well, perhaps it’s this. Julian Dawson has the ineffable quality of inspiring and moving the listener to a better place. Songs like “Sigh Heart”, “New Columbus” and “Never Alone” perfectly illustrate the point that Dawson is currently hanging out the competition to dry."
