John Otway and Wild Willy Barrett first achieved notoriety with an eye-watering performance on the Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single Really Free in 1977.

John Otway’s heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades. Wild Willy Barrett is one of the most accomplished multi-instrumentalists working today, playing acoustic classical guitar with an original style and virtuosity few could match.
