Never miss another 'Ralph McTell' show
Somewhere Down The Road: Ralph McTell
Award winning singer-songwriter-guitarist Ralph McTell will be touring the UK this Autumn performing material from his recent album 'Somewhere Down The Road'.
McTell will also be playing several songs from his new Bob Dylan birthday tribute download 'Don't Think Twice It's Alright'. The concerts will also feature songs from McTell's extensive back catalogue of over 350 songs, including his worldwide, Ivor Novello award winning hit 'Streets of London'.
From an early age, Ralph began his career by hitch-hiking around Europe with his guitar, emulating his hero Woody Guthrie. In the mid 60s he worked at a Cornish campsite, being maintenance man by day, entertainer by night, where he graced the stage at the 'Folk Cottage', a tiny barn in Cornwall that hosted an impromptu club, before eventually settling on the 'streets of London'. During this period, Nick Drake's last public performance was supporting Ralph at Epsom college. It was in 1969 that Ralph came to widespread attention though, thanks to an appearance at the Cambridge Folk Festival where all the audience sang along to the now classic anthem 'Streets Of London', thus launching a long term career penning and performing beautiful acoustic and folk politically conscious songs.
