He has been described as “an artist of stylistic versatility and consummate musicality, a complete guitarist, a singer/song writer of rare talent and absurdly accomplished”.

He is one of the most celebrated song-smiths, with many of his songs adopted into the tradition.

He will be playing at Northleigh Village Hall on Saturday, February 9, at 8pm, in a gig organised by Villages in Action.
