CHRIS WOOD is a remarkable composer and
musician (violin, guitar and voice). Immersed in English church music and later
in the traditional music of
Now his solo album “The Lark Descending” has received remarkable acclaim and Chris tours solo in 2006.
“In a warm, dark brown voice with sparse, minimalist accompaniment, Wood is an intimate story teller, applying such nuance and gravitas to every phrase you are imperceptibly lured into his world…. he seamlessly knits the spirit of the tradition into his very contemporary parables. And it's magnificent.”
The Irish Times ****
“Wood's ferocious musicality is everywhere: from the fiery cello scaffolding of John Barleycorn to the somnolent guitar of Bleary Winter. Unapologetically and quintessentially English - and unmissable.”
