Chris Wood

We had a great evening with Chris Wood in the week before Christmas 2008, just after it was announced that he had five! nominations in the 2009 BBC Folk Awards.

Chris Wood has been called “The renaissance man of English folk”. His first solo album “The Lark Descending” was Mojo’s Folk Album of the Month on its release, and was Number One on both fRoots’ playlist and Radio 3’s World Roots playlist.

This album includes the BBC Folk Award winning song “One in A Million” (which still makes half the Goose cry whenever she (clue) hears it ….. cry in a good way though – it has a very happy ending 🙂 )

Chris has performed on Verity Sharp’s Late Junction on Radio 3, and was part of Simon Emerson’s acclaimed Imagined Village project which also included Paul Weller, Billy Bragg, and Martin and Eliza Carthy on.

Of his album “Trespasser”, the BBC said “If he continues to produce albums with the fragile beauty and profoundly human warmth of Trespasser, then (his) future should be very bright indeed.
