In a career spanning over fifty years, renowned English folk-singer Ralph McTell has gained an international following for his powerfully emotive songs and his virtuoso guitar playing.
Often considered one of the great storytellers and songwriters of his generation, he weaves narratives of great poignancy – including his classic, Streets of London and From Clare to Here about Irish immigration – inviting listeners into his unique world.
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 Other Voices/ Other Rooms and in 2002 Ralph was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
