The Songs of Roy Harper Performed by Jon Pollard

Recreate the authentic atmosphere of a Roy Harper gig from the early 90s.

There's nobody else quite like Roy Harper, his unique voice, songs and guitar styles were like nothing else on the music scene. Although massively respected by his peers and working closely with musicians such as Jimmy Page, Dave Gilmour and Kate Bush, he was often overlooked by the music industry. 

What people are saying

  • "Couldn't put a Rizla paper between your rendition and the original"
  • "Best Harper covers I ever heard! absolutely incredible"
  • "Absolutely F***ING AMAZING - a joy to watch"
  • "gives the original a run for it's money"
  • "Impressive and powerful"
  • Thanks, Jon Pollard. That's a Roy gig!!

This is another song from the lockdown Roy Harper gig I did at the end of August. It's one of Roy's most popular songs and shorter than most... It's a beautiful song though which was once covered as a duet by Kate Bush…
