Lucid with sp guests Davey Dodd & Friends at The 1865 | Wednesday, 19. August 2020


In 2007 chance encounters on the Isle of Wight brought together pianist Blue Brown, guitarist Sunny Brown, bass player Ollie Ducie and violin player Nik Potts to form the folk rock band Lucid.

Four albums and over a thousand concerts later, Lucid's musical journey continues. Combining their individual writing and musical talents they produce a sound which blends stunning vocals with rich melodies.

Tours to Germany, France and Switzerland followed.

A couple of highlights for Lucid were when they filled a 400 seat theatre in 2013 to launch their fourth album 'If By Chance'. Together with a professional DVD of the concert, these showcase not only their individual talents but also those of many additional musicians coming together to enrich Lucid's unique musical sound.

2014 was a particularly busy and productive year. Not only did they tour Canada for a month, playing 20 gigs in four provinces, but they staged their most ambitious UK concert to date. This saw thirty people at a Lucid gig – on stage, that is! The group sold out the 600 seats of the largest theatre on the Isle of Wight to an audience that travelled nationwide for the evening. The stage was crowded with not only soloists on Cello, Flute and Sax, but also the string section of the Island's Symphony Orchestra, and a male voice choir providing backing vocals.

Lucid released what is considered to be their best album to date late 2017. They were fortunate to have the album mixed and produced by Simon Hanhart, since then lucid have graced some highly prestigious festival stages and venues and are working toward a new album in 2020.


DAVEY DODDS has had his tunes covered by many others including the Unthanks whose version of Magpie was used in the programme the Detectorists.

He was the original singer with prog band Red Jasper
