Classic Album Sundays presents Nick Cave ‘The Boatman’s Call’

For our March events we will be featuring Nick Cave’s 10th studio album The Boatman’s Call, a piano based album which serves as a departure from his usual post punk sound. The album is widely regarded as one of his finest works.


Whilst direct, the music pulls in many influences from blues to jazz, which offer a revealing and sympathetic bed for Cave’s best, most affecting songs. The lyrics are crooned, rather than shouted, over sparse guitar and piano arrangements resulting in his most beautiful sounding album.


Join us at one of our events worldwide to hear this album as never before. Listening guidelines apply.
