Never miss another 'Ralph McTell' show
An English Heartbeat: Ralph McTell
One of the great storytellers, Ralph McTell is now celebrating more than 40 years on the road and he heads out once more this Autumn on a 23 date UK tour.
Known for his virtuoso guitar style, he is primarily a prolific and gifted songwriter, so don't miss your chance to see him live in concert!
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.
