Chris Wood, Exeter Phoenix, Thursday 20th October

By Martin Hodge

Hailed as ‘the renaissance man of English folk’, Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer, singer and musician whose music reveals his love for the unofficial history of the English speaking people.

With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. He is a superb, passionate performer.

Chris Wood has received many accolades both for his solo and collaborative musical performances and for his song writing. 

He is a self-taught guitarist and violinist and is always direct and unafraid to speak his mind and is the master of under-statement both in his lyrics and musicianship.

Throughout his career he has never been afraid to experiment and has worked with fine musicians with differing approaches.

With renowned melodeon player Andy Cutting he formed one of the most influential acts on the English folk music scene.

Chris set Hugh Lupton’s wonderful poem One in a million to music and it became an award-winning song.

His performance of the traditional song Cold Haily,Rainy Night  in The Imagined Village with Martin and Eliza Carthy took the award for Best Traditional Song at the Folk Awards in 2008. 

All his solo albums from Lark Ascending in 2006 to his latest album Handmaid Life (‘Gentle, powerful and classy’, The Guardian) have received wide acclaim.
