Roy Harper

Roy Harper has been a recording artist for over 50 years and his awards have included the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013 and the Mojo Magazines Hero Award in 2005 presented to him by long time collaborator and friend, Jimmy Page. In September 2013 Roy Harper: Man & Myth – The Documentary, directed by George Scott, was broadcast on Sky Arts and his first album in thirteen years, Man & Myth, was released to rave reviews on Bella Union followed by three special concerts.

Now officially ‘retired’, and living in a secluded corner of Ireland, Harper has recently been hailed as a key influence by a much younger generation of devoted starsailors who instinctively recognise his innovations, his refusal to compromise and his visionary world view.
