Arthur Darvill: What Will Be

From 31st May 2017
HighTide Festival Walthamstow 2017

Best known for his roles in Broadchurch, Dr Who and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Arthur Darvill is also an award-winning musician and composer. Debuting brand new songs from his forthcoming album What Will Be, Arthur will be working with long time collaborators drummer Dominic Goundar and singer Inès De Clercq.

This is a rare chance to hear Arthur perform his own material live. He writes personal songs with soaring melodies that draw on an eclectic mix of influences, from classical songwriting to more experimental music. Mixing acoustic and electronic elements, Arthur’s music is soulful, lyrical and both emotional and energetic.

Arthur has played in various bands over the years including Edmund, and on tour with Fyfe Dangerfield and Mark Eitzel, and he has written music for theatres including the National Theatre, Young Vic and Shakespeare’s Globe.

His musical Been So Long, written with Ché Walker, has been adapted for the screen for BFI/Film 4 and is currently in post-production.
