Presenting the best of folk, roots and acoustic music in London
Chris Cleverley The Harrison, Kings Cross Thursday 5th March Doors 7:30pm, Live Music 8:00pm Tickets £10 Advance
Maybe it is Chris Cleverley’s eternally restless, whirring chasm of a mind that leads him to constantly innovate and re-imagine his unique interpretation of 21st Century Alt-folk music. With a visceral lyrical style, inspired by the American Greats Elliott Smith and Paul Simon, Chris shines a light on diverse, arresting themes from deteriorating anxious minds, via damaging gender constructs, to mystical tales of the occult. Possessing a guitar fingerstyle steeped in the lore of the UK Folk Revival, the essence of John Martyn and Nic Jones pulses through his veins. With a blistering yet delicate technique, described as ‘Impressive’ by The Telegraph, Chris is fast becoming one of the standout players on the UK Songwriting circuit.
