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.

Ralph McTell, ap­pear­ing at Princess Theatre, Hun­stan­ton, in Oc­to­ber.
