and guitarist Ralph McTell plays the Princess Theatre, Hunstanton, on Thursday, October 18 as part of his 32-date UK Autumn tour.
One of the great storytellers, McTell is celebrating more than 50 years on the road and this quintessentially English troubadour still loves touring.
In 1974 the release of ‘Streets of London’ earned him an Ivor Novello Award and his tale of Irish emigration ‘From Clare to Here’ has become a much-covered anthem in its own right.
In 2002 he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards.
Known and much admired by musicians and aficionados for his dexterous guitar playing, aspiring young guns of the acoustic guitar find inspiration in Ralph’s highly proficient and entertaining ragtime and blues instrumental pieces, delivered with style and panache.
His ‘Streets of London’ is as socially relevant today as when he first wrote it.
