Chris Cleverly

Friday 31 May 2019

Award winning songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Chris Cleverley is renowned for his ability to mesmerise audiences with his haunting tales of ghost women, lonesome clock towers, lovelorn mariners and hospital beds.
Chris’ trademark solo live sound is at times likened to the magnitude of a full orchestra to only moments later pull audiences to the very edge of their seats to soak in the delicate spider-like touch of his fingerstyle guitar playing.

His critically acclaimed debut album ‘Apparitions’ sailed into The Telegraph’s top 70 folk albums of 2015, while national music press heavyweights such as Acoustic Magazine, fRoots, R2, Maverick and Folk Radio UK encouraged readers to keep a close eye. Since winning Bristol Folk Festival’s 2014 ‘Isambard Folk Award’, Chris’ national presence has grown exponentially, gracing BBC radio airwaves and the stages of top UK folk festivals.

A truly singular and innovative artist of the new British Folk Scene; Chris Cleverley is a name to remember.uperb guitar and song.

This dynamic quartet play Scottish traditional music at its best. The bands potent mixture of traditional ballads and fiery instrumentals leaves their audiences spellbound. As tight and versatile as any band in the Celtic music scene, the Tannahills can summon rock-n-roll intensity or haunting introspection.
