Chris Cleverley, 8.30 pm Wednesday 16 May 2018 at Carrington Folk Club

Our next guest on Wednesday 16 May is CHRIS CLEVERLEY who might fall into the category of singer- songwriter, but has much more to surprise and delight. A fingerstyle guitarist and banjo player, his style faithfully captures the essence of the folk revival and continues the legacy of Nic Jones and John Renbourn. His unique brand of contemporary folk contrasts the calming pastoral influence of his childhood in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons and Cornwall with the raw and at times unsettling honesty of his lyricism. “With guitar playing ancestry pulsing through his veins, Chris is fast gaining the accolade of being among the most masterful players on the scene”.
