Gruff Rhys residency traces ancestor’s journey across America

Gruff RhysHe’s never been one to stick to convention, but even for him, Gruff Rhys‘s forthcoming residency at Soho Theatre is slightly bonkers.

He’ll be getting his pointy stick ready for a Powerpoint presentation, giving us a sample of his Investigative Concert tour, which he took across America last year. It saw him play shows along the road as he retraced the steps of his distant ancestor John Evans, an 18th Century Welsh farmhand who travelled to America in search of a mythical tribe of Welsh speaking native Americans.

The tour spawned his new album American Interior, due for release on 5 May, as well as a film, an app and a book of the same title.

Gruff Rhys plays at the Soho Theatre, London, on 5-10 May 2014. More here.
