Dr King was an integral part at the beginning of London’s famous 12 Bar Club, and has worked over the years with three of the true giants of British acoustic guitar: Bert Jansch, John Renbourne & Davy Graham. On Friday 21 September he’ll be accompanied by a few special guests, covering a full suite of raga crossovers with Arabic, Celtic and flamenco influences.
