Acclaimed British songwriter and cult figure Robyn Hitchcock will celebrate the publication of “Somewhere Apart”, his first book of illustrated lyrics, by playing four intimate retrospective shows upstairs at Nashville City Winery this July. The first three shows will be performances of some of his most celebrated albums, and the fourth will be a selection of Hitchcock’s favorite songs by other artists.
July 8: I Often Dream Of Trains
July 15: Element Of Light
July 22: Eye
July 29: Songs By Other People
Some thoughts about the publication of “Somewhere Apart” from the author and illustrator:
“I started drawing long before I could play the guitar; in many ways my songs are an extension of my artwork. To me a great song unfolds before your eyes even as it swims into your ears.”
Some thoughts about the cover show on July 29:
“I’ve been playing my songs for so long, they feel like somebody else wrote them; and the covers feel like mine”, says Hitchcock “In a few years time, who’s going to know the difference anyway?”
Some thoughts about playing in Nashville:
“As a teenager, I replaced my parents with Bob Dylan” says Hitchcock “and now here I am based in Nashville. Actions have consequences, y’all”.
Hitchcock will be joined by local friends and special guests.
