This event has been and gone.

Greg Russell loves singing. It’s his favourite thing to do. He’s done it for audiences for nearly 15 years. In that time, he has toured solo, in duos and in bands. He’s won two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, whilst being nominated for a third. He was the creative force behind the political song project Shake the Chains (???? The Guardian) and was a member of the twice touring Transports musical (????? The Guardian). He’s toured extensively across Europe and further
afield.

Greg decided to stop touring full time in 2019, when he chose to turn his attention to other interests, but he still loves to sing, and this is a rare opportunity to see him do so!

This event will be held live on Zoom, with a remote sound engineer for high-quality sound. Our gigs allow interaction between artists and audiences, so the artist can hear you applaud and you can even have the chance to ask them any burning questions. Tickets are £16.50, with the option to pay a bit less (£10) or a bit more (£25) depending on what is affordable for you. You only need one ticket per household.

Please note: All live stream events are subject to change. Not all events listed are live performances by the artist - they also include archived concerts, DJ sets, masterclasses, Q&As and more.

Greg began his career in folk singing at the age of 14, performing floor-spots at Chester’s Raven Folk Club but, with remarkable speed, established himself as a singer, musician, songwriter and song interpreter of great promise. In 2011, Greg teamed up with fiddler extraordinaire Ciaran Algar of Tri fame and the rest (as they say) is history. Greg and Ciaran have taken the British folk music scene by storm, clinching two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards -The Young Folk (2013) and Horizon Award (2014) With two widely acclaimed studio albums on the Fellside label to their credit (The Queen’s Lover and The Call) and a live DVD (In Concert) they really have fulfilled their promise.
