Chris Wood *

18th March 2019

Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the unofficial history of the English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. A self-taught musician, composer and song writer, Chris is a lifelong autodidact whose independent streak shines through everything he does. Always direct and unafraid to speak his mind, his song writing has been praised for its surgical clarity.

He cites his major influence as “Anon”. His eagerly awaited new album ‘So Much to Defend’ (officially released 27th Jan 2017) was previewed at Cambridge Folk Festival last summer and includes reflections on minor league football, empty nest syndrome, learning to swim, Cook-in Sauce and, not least, the Gecko as a metaphor for contemporary society.


Both Tony and Paul go back a long way with the folk club. Both are singer-songwriters, who perform mainly their own self-penned material. They both now live in Suffolk and are performing as a new duo for the first time in Colchester. Some of you may remember Paul’s appearances here as a member of Flash Company and RMC.

£14 / £12 concessions.
Doors open 7.45pm.
