Mention Ralph McTell and undoubtedly "Streets of London" will come into conversation...

It is one of the all-time great songs that has stood the test of time, by being recorded by over 200 artistes in three or more decades

But if you only know Ralph for Streets of London, you've missed out, for he is arguably our finest songwriter and storyteller, and is equally at home playing roots, rock and ragtime and he is in his element playing the blues music that inspired him as a young man... and thankfully he remembers his heroes with songs of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie featuring prominently in his unforgettable and uninterrupted two hour show.

 One of the great storytellers, Ralph McTell, is now celebrating 30 years on the road. Known for his virtuoso guitar style, he is primarily a prolific and gifted songwriter. With a style that invites you into a unique world, he weaves a narrative that is both significant and poignant.

Ralph made his debut in 1968 with the album 'Eight Frames a Second' and in 1974 the release of 'Streets of London' earned him an Ivor Novello Award. In 1993, Nanci Griffith recorded 'From Clare to Here' on her Grammy Award winning album and in 2002 he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
