Ewan McLennan *

9th March 2020

Ewan McLennan has, in a short space of time, come to be known as a guitarist at the forefront of his generation; a troubadour, balladeer and storyteller cut in the old style; a singer that can move audiences with his passion and pathos; and a songwriter for whom social justice is still a burning issue.

Having learnt from and worked with both Martin Simpson and Dick Gaughan, it’s evident in Ewan’s guitar playing and in his music that he has absorbed and inherited a great deal, and at first hand, from the older generation of ‘folk greats’ before carving his own path. The songs he sings and writes are rooted in traditional songs and the tradition of folk music as social commentary.

This date at Colchester Folk Club features songs from Ewan’s new album, Borrowed Songs, to be released on1st February 2020.
