Benjamin
Clementine

& Special Guests
Thursday 10 August 2017
Festival Theatre

Benjamin Clementine makes music that goes way beyond categories. Singing from the gut with a raw emotional honesty, he creates deeply personal songs full of love and melancholy, hope and regret.

In this concert he is joined by special guests for an evening of beautiful music across international cultures.

He famously honed his skills as a homeless busker on the streets of Paris – and has since been championed by Sir Paul McCartney, David Byrne and many more. He’s been compared to Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen, Anohni and Rufus Wainwright - for the unflinching intelligence of his lyrics and for the soulful solemnity of his unforgettable vocals – so intimate and focused it can feel as though he’s singing directly to you.

Clementine won the Mercury Prize in 2015 for his debut album At Least For Now, and has been called one of the greatest singer-songwriters of his generation.

The advertised time is approximately when the performance will start. Doors will open at least 30 mins prior to this time.
