Cover of Nick Drake’s Far Leys / Sketch 1, one of his instrumental home recordings. I had the idea for this video over a year ago, and we filmed a rough version in June 2016. I then recorded the songs audio that appears in this video around the same time and was waiting for the perfect time to visit Nick’s childhood home in Tanworth In Arden. Then by chance the day I decided to visit was the day that Nick was awarded his Blue Plaque so all the Super 8 style videos are from that day. I also shot some super 8 footage of me with Nick's blanket that I recreated. I put a lot of time into making this video, I hope it is a fitting tribute to Nick. Thanks for watching and hope you like it!
I recorded every instrumental track from Merle Travis' 1960 LP Walkin' The Strings, 17 songs and 17 videos in total. The videos are styled on the Ozark Jubilee and Country Style USA and other country shows from the 1950s. I recorded, designed and directed everything for the videos so the creation of the videos took a lot of time to complete. Thanks for watching!
