The latest in an ongoing series of exciting gigs sees David Ian Roberts performing in the intimate space of Babar Café in Union Street on Thursday, March 7.

Curated by Sproatly Smith, architect of all things “Weirdshire”, this is a must-see for anyone with an enthusiasm for fine songcraft, deft acoustic guitar playing, and beautiful singing. David’s music takes inspiration from great guitarists such as Bert Jansch, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, and brings in elements of classical and jazz music. He is based in Cardiff, and has played in Hereford quite a few times in the last few years, winning new fans each time he visits.

He is currently on tour, supporting the release of his new album, Travelling Bright, released via Welsh label Cambrian Records on March 15. So this is a special opportunity to catch him, and copies of his album, ahead of the rest of the world… The album feels like a real artistic statement, a double LP, full of ambition. David’s lyrical imagery finds parallels between our emotional landscapes and the natural world, and the sea and the sky are recurring themes throughout the album.

Free entry, with a suggested donation of £8.
