Craftsman on stage.
ChrisWood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the un-official history of the English speaking people.
A self-taught musician, composer and song writer, Chris - who performs at theTolbooth on Saturday, November 10 - is a lifelong autodidact whose independent streak shines through everything he does.
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.
Collaborators include Martin Carthy, Dizraeli, Billy Bragg, Andy Cutting, Andy Irvine, Karine Polwart, Jean Francois Vrod, The Imagined Village, Hugh Lupton, Martin Butler and many others.
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.
