As part of the duo of Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar Greg has made three albums and won two BBC awards. Here he branches out on his own with a wide ranging programme of his own songs, traditional songs and songs by writers as diverse as Si Kahn and Mick Ryan.Most of the songs have a political bias. Greg has decided to keep it simple and straightforward with his powerful singing style and accomplished guitar accompaniment doing the work, but he has enlisted a little help from bass player Tim Yates - Nancy Kerr's Sweet Visitor Band and Blackbeard's Tea Party - and box player Archie Churchill-Moss - Moore. Moss & Rutter. Greg recently created the 'Shake The Chains' series of concerts and toured with 'The Transports' shows.

Press Quotes

Hi all, Songlines have just sent me a PDF of the Europe reviews, see attached with Greg's within, quote wise how about "Russell's music and delivery exudes confidence and conviction."


" 'Inclined To Be Red' will stand as a record of the natural progression of Greg Russell. A joy to appreciate the solo incarnation of a young musician who has created such a stir and made an indelible mark in the folk field in a short time."


"To the people who think politics has no place in music, like the man Russell met in that folk club, Inclined To Be Red is a timely reminder that the opposite is true. It is an album in which resignation and caution are explored, given space, and ultimately transcended by care and warmth, and it proves that music still can – and indeed must – engage with the world in a positive way. A gentle affirmation of the power of song"

Folk Radio UK

"This is a significant release. I wish it a fair wind."

Living Tradition

"Get a copy of this fine album and lend your voice."

Mike Davies,

"After such a storming 2017, Russell has established himself as a must-listen no matter what he's singing, or with whom."

Morning Star

"Some of these songs are quite hard-hitting but he doesn't hit you with them – he just suggests that you might care to listen."

Dai Jeffries,
