The second full performance in London of Youngest ChildSPOTTISWOODE‘s one-man memoir-in-song. Time-traveling through more than a century, taking in London, Edinburgh, New York, the South of France, even the Arctic Circle, the Anglo-American troubadour channels his parents and grandparents as well as his younger self on a redemptive journey to the present. After January’s debut of the show in both London and New York, Spottiswoode returns to the Green Note with a newly tweaked incarnation of his ambitious work-in-progress.
Referred to as a “genius” and a “downtown ringleader” by The New Yorker, Spottiswoode is the son of an American opera singer and an English clergyman. His music sometimes get compared to Tom Waits, Ray Davies and Leonard Cohen but he’s very much his own man. WNYC’s John Schaefer describes him as “one of New York’s more colorful band leaders for more than a decade.” Now based in the UK, Spottiswoode plays regularly in London and on the continent as well as with his Enemies in the USA. His songs have been featured in a wide variety of movies and TV shows. His award-winning gothic rock opera, Above Hell’s Kitchen, played to sold-out crowds at the New York Musical Theatre Festival. His screenplay, Either Side Of Midnight, was recently made into a feature film by veteran James Bond director Roger Spottiswoode – remarkably no relation!

 

Doors open 7.30pm. Music starts 8pm. The venue is mixed seated and standing. Tables are limited and available on a first come first served basis so, if you’d like a seat, we recommend arriving early!
