Surrounded by Celtic music, bluegrass, roots music and jazz from an early age, Chris was heavily influenced by British folk and American jazz and roots music. Fast forward a couple of decades and the UK based musician finds himself playing regularly with many of Europes leading jazz guitarists and has been making a name for himself in his own right.
Live, Chris’ shows cover a wide range of acoustic music alongside his own material. From authentic interpretations of traditional and contemporary British folk songs to lightning quick bluegrass flat picking and from intricate finger style delta blues and swing jazz numbers to instrumental solo guitar pieces. Chris has carved his trade for over a decade touring worldwide, along the way he’s taken in shows at venues like BB Kings New York, Cambridge Folk Festival, London’s Royal Albert Hall and had a stint as the opening act for the Jools Holland orchestra.
