Chris Wood: World famous folk singer
One of Englandâ€™s most vivid and arresting song writers, Chris Wood was awarded the title of BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the year in 2011. Afterwards he joined Joan Armatrading as a special guest on her 51 date Autumn 2012 tour and Wood found himself eavesdropping on conversations from pound shops to tea rooms, army recruiting centres to hotel saunas collecting the poetry of recession. His response is, None The Wiser, a fourth solo album released in Summer 2013. With humble hymns and sweeping statements from Alzheimers to William Blake, Wood lovingly takes the pulse of his homeland in what could be his best album yet.
