Description

    Nick Drake Ewell Tech Folk Club Concert Poster For His Last Ever Performance (1970). Printed on thin white paper, dated Thursday June 25, for a show in Surrey, UK, showing an illustration of headline act Ralph McTell with Drake listed as the support. Printed by "Screendream Production, Redhill 61104". Measures 15" x 20". In Very Good Plus condition with some creasing and wear to edges and corners.

    This poster documents Nick Drake's final, brief live performance in 1970 at Ewell Technical College. In Trevor Dann's book Darker Than The Deepest Sea: The Search For Nick Drake Ralph McTell recalls "Nick was monosyllabic. At that particular gig he was very shy. He did the first set and something awful must have happened. He was doing his song, 'Fruit Tree', and walked off halfway through it. Just left the stage." Over the next few years Drake became progressively more and more withdrawn and depressed. He tragically died from an overdose in 1974, aged 26.
