Description

Ralph McTell is one of Britain's most respected and best-loved singer/songwriters. His career dates back to the mid-1960s folk boom when, influenced by American bluesmen such as Big Bill Broonzy and the Reverend Gary Davies, he gained a reputation as a skilled finger-style guitarist. To this day, he remains one of the UK's finest acoustic players and singer song writers. His career has now spanned over 49 years - and marches on at a pace.

As well as the great American Bluesmen, McTell sites artists such as Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie as major influences, having a huge impact on his life then, and continuing to do so today. Best known for 'Streets of London, the million-selling worldwide hit, Ralph McTell has written over 300 hundreds songs - his writing has earned him the Ivor Novello Award and a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award.

McTell continues to write, record and tour, throughout the UK and internationally too.

Ralph is a "writer" - of songs, of books and poetry - and all the diverse threads that he, as a writer and performing artist, has woven together, over the years, have created what the British public accept today as a "national treasure".
