K-City Music Tuesdays

Chris Wood


Tuesday 26 February 8pm

Gulbenkian Café Bar Canterbury



"…the renaissance man of English folk" The Irish Times


Kent-born Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the un-official history of the English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables, drawing from his experiences of English church music, and also traditional music from Quebec and France.


His writing has been said to be timeless, with his solo album The Lark Descending causing such ripples in the mainstream that his recently released follow up album, Trespasser has been one of the most anticipated folk discs in recent memory. This thought provoking and intelligent album challenges and rewards in equal measure, and is full of fragile beauty and profoundly human warmth.


His appeal goes way beyond those who think they like English folk music - even to those who think that they don't. 


"Contemporary hero of the English folk tradition...radical, fierce, compassionate, humane, political, proud, tender, humorous, critical and frank. Wood's work speaks directly to anyone concerned with English life and society... his impact is immediate and direct." Bath Festival 2006


On the last Tuesday of every month, K-City introduces their own brand of live music events in the Gulbenkian Café Bar. With an emphasis on original bands and performers, Music Tuesdays aims to elevate Tuesdays beyond ‘the dullest day of the week’ and present an interesting mix of rising stars and seasoned veterans.
