Poems by Walter Raleigh, set to music and performed by Peter Spafford (piano and vocal) and Dave Bowie Jr (double bass).
Sir Walter Raleigh was executed 400 years ago. Visionary explorer, passionate lover, flawed politician, Walter was also a Devonian poet. Most of his poetry was written for music - though perhaps not this music.
Peter Spafford is a poet, playwright, musician, and one-third of the Leeds music collective, Schwa. Dave Bowie Jr has played in many different musical ensembles, including Martha and the Vandelas, William Bell and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
Supported by Hugh Nankivell with Steve Sowden (two-thirds of Trio of Men), singing municipal songs, Oliver Heaviside songs, Beck songs, Brexit songs and more…
