FOLK troubadour Chris Wood showcases his uncompromising approach to songwriting with an intimate Roots Unearthed concert at St David’s Hall this Tuesday, February 6.
Chris’ music reveals his love for the unofficial history of the English speaking people, and with gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. As a self-taught musician, composer and songwriter, he has the air of a craftsman who no longer needs to be precious about his art. Without any apparent effort he reaches deep into an enviable repertoire of songs before revealing another gem.
Dubbed the “renaissance man of English folk” by The Irish Times, Chris has won a glut of accolades including Songwriter of the Year at the Spiral Earth Awards 2014, as well as the prestigious prizes of Folk Singer of the Year and Best Original Song (for Hollow Point) at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2011.
It’s with good reason that Chris has established a long list of admirers and collaborators including Joan Armatrading, Billy Bragg and Martin Carthy.
