Inspired by the North Devon coastline and local stories of smuggling, wrecking and piracy, Chris has combined the traditional with the contemporary, penning moving songs of the sea, the past and the heart.
Chris is an exquisite story teller and wordsmith whose tales are both intimate and timeless.
A multitalented multi-instrumentalist, Chris feels at ease with anything from the guitar to squeeze box, from mandolin to sitar. This diversity of influences and instruments compliments his compositions. Chris' strong stage presence, combined with his powerful songs and moving lyrics, has enchanted and captivated audiences across the country.
Chris has played at Brampton live festival, Sidmouth folk festival, Sun West festival, headline gig at Bideford Folk Festival and North Devon festival, performing alongside acts such as Richard Thompson, Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman, Jim Moray, and recently supported Show of Hands at their annual sell-out RHS Rosemoor concert.
With a firm and dedicated following, Chris is busy building his repertoire and his reputation as one of the leading North Devon nu-folk artists.
