Lunchtime Performance- Chris Wood
October 17, 2017 at 1:15 pm - 2:00 pm
Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the unofficial history of English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables.
A self-taught musician, composer and songwriter, Chris is a lifelong autodidact whose independent streak shines through everything he does. Always direct and unafraid to speak his mind, his songwriting has been praised for its surgical clarity. He cites “Anon” as his major influence.
His eagerly awaited new album ‘So Much to Defend’ (officially released on January 27th, 2017) was previewed at Cambridge Folk Festival last summer 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.
