Anthony John Clarke plus The Fragile Hearts All Anthony John Clarke ever wanted to be was a writer of songs, from the minute he heard Barry Maguire singing the song Eve of Destruction and held the single Like A Rolling Stone by Dylan in his hand.
From that point, he says, he was doomed to that life that could so easily end in failure. Irish-born and educated, he became a teacher but song writing remained his raison d’etre. It was perhaps inevitable that by his mid-thirties he found his way into the music profession and was discovered in turn by audiences all over the world. Twenty-five years on he has a string of self-penned albums to his credit, a legion of fans and a date sheet that stretches two years into the future.
This includes what appears to be at least half the folk clubs in the UK as well as assorted village halls, theatres and arts centres, plus the plum MC’s job in 2017 at the 50th Cropready Convention.
“He storms it every night he gets on stage. Brilliant!!! He had our audience eating out of his hand every night on the Fairport Convention Tour” says Fairport’s Dave Pegg.
Newly formed local duo The Fragile Hearts will open the evening have already started to build a reputation as highly captivating performers. Steve’s songwriting, haunting melodies and accomplished guitar playing will tug at your heartstrings. Helena trained as a cellist at the Royal College of Music in London. Her enchanting cello playing brings a depth and beauty to the music that makes for a unique and engaging experience.
