Strange Face: Adventures with a Lost Nick Drake Recording

In the 1970s, Michael Burdett found a recording in a skip. Twenty years later, he finally played the tape – an unknown version of one of Nick Drake’s greatest works. He offered people the chance to hear the recording in exchange for photographing them – including Noel Fielding, Danny Baker and Martin Freeman.

A celebration of life, coincidences and the legacy of singer-songwriter Nick Drake.

WHY? ‘Keeps us surprised and involved throughout. A gorgeous show’ The Times
