58 Fordwych Road is an all new show that centres around a living room in a flat in Kilburn, London in the 1960sThe abode of up and coming singer songwriter Roy Harper and his wife Mocy was an after hours hang-out for the legends who played at Les Cousins in Soho at the height of the acoustic explosion in swingin' sixties London.

Artists such as Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, John Renbourn, Paul Simon, Sandy Denny, Marc Bolan and others dropped in, to drop out, jam and try new tunes. But all along, there was someone else there .... a toddler, part of the family, inhaling the music and absorbing the vibe; Roy's young son, Nick Harper.
