Richard Dawson was due to perform at the Barbican in March 2020, but as a global pandemic swallowed live music whole, the title of his latest album, 2020, has felt oddly prescient. The album was released in 2019, prior to the outbreak, but its underlying themes of anxiety, the nation’s collective psychic crisis and gradual slide into dystopia are pertinent. Despite this, the record has always felt warm, affirming and a call to unite.
 
Dawson’s curated show Delight is Right – a gathering of friends, favourites and fellow travellers – is due to be rescheduled, with details to be announced . This live streamed set will see a solo Richard Dawson perform material taken from 2020 alongside a selection of his older songs. Expect to hear a mix of folk, punk and lively stories.

The online stream will be followed by a Q&A with comedian Stewart Lee.
