Event Description

Chris Wood is an uncompromising songwriter whose music reveals his love for the unofficial history of the English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he blends the tradition with his own contemporary parables.

A self-taught musician, composer and songwriter, Chris is a lifelong autodidact whose independent streak shines through everything he creates. Always direct and unafraid to speak his mind, his songwriting has been praised for its surgical clarity. He cites his major influence as ‘Anon’.

His most recent album So Much to Defend has met with wide critical acclaim and includes reflections on minor league football, empty nest syndrome, learning to swim, Cook-in Sauce and, not least, the Gecko as a metaphor for contemporary society.
