Chris Wood

Chris Wood

Chris Wood is a wise and soulful craftsman and an uncompromising writer. With gentle intelligence, he weaves tradition with his own contemporary parables. Winner of six BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and a self-taught musician, composer, and songwriter, Chris is always direct and unafraid to speak his mind, and his writing is permeated with love and wry intelligence.

His most recent album So Much to Defend has received 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. 

On stage, Chris has the air of a craftsman who no longer needs to be precious about his art. Without any apparent effort he reaches deep into an enviable repertoire of songs before revealing another gem. 

'Chris Wood might be the Ken Loach of songwriting. Very political, but at the same time full of compassion, and he grows sharper and more acute with each passing album. He’s good, quite probably the very best we have today, and we need him more than ever.'
