Robert Wyatt at Green Man
Robert Wyatt will visit "Talking Shop" at the Green Man festival, happening 15 - 18 August in Wales!
Stealing info from Green Man:
A not-to-be–missed conversation with an artist whose incredible music, wisdom and compassion feel more relevant and generous with each passing year. The founding member of Soft Machine has played or collaborated with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett, Fred Frith, Brian Eno, Scritti Politti, Elvis Costello, and Bjork (to name a few) throughout his career, it’s safe to say that Robert Wyatt is one of the world's best-loved singers and songwriters in history.
**please note, Robert Wyatt will be in conversation, this is not a musical performance**"
"Talking Shop" is curated by Richard King, author of "How Soon is Now?: The Madmen and Mavericks who made Independent Music 1975-2005" (2012), and among the other talkers at the festival are James Yorkston, Pete Brown and Julian Cope.
And John Cale is also coming!
