Chris Cleverley

Thursday 27th September

Chris Cleverley is of that younger generation of folk and traditional artists who are bringing this genre of music back to the forefront of popular appreciation. As a new name for Rothbury Roots I'm pleased to bring him to Rothbury for you. Chris has his roots firmly set in the folk music of his heroes such as Nic Jones and John Renbourn. His guitar playing is of an appropriate excellent standard and his voice carries the melodies and lyrics effortlessly above his intricate guitar stylings As such he is continuing the legacy of his heroes. Expect Chris's songs to walk a line of traditional style but delivered in a contemporary context. The essence of the folk revival lives on in his memorable song writing and energetic traditional arrangements.

"An impressive debut album from the Midlands musician, who has a neat fingerstyle technique and a sweet voice" 
The Telegraph

"Any tune could warrant a mention given the accomplishment displayed on Apparitions"
R2 Magazine ★★★★
