On Wed, Oct 22nd , we’re very happy to welcome Chris Ronald, nominated for the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award, in his cross-country tour.
abbreviated from his website www.chrisronald.com: “Chris Ronald’s “keenly luxuriant voice and immaculate songcraft” (Ken Eisner, The Georgia Straight) have gained him a passionately loyal following around the world. Timeline, Chris’ third album released March 2014, has been turning heads with successes in the coveted Kerrville New Folk and International Songwriting competitions, and he’s now been nominated to become “Songwriter of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Whether it be solo or as a duo with John Ellis, Chris is scheduled to tour internationally as well as across Canada as a VIA Rail ‘Artist on Board.’
Chris emigrated from England to Canada in 2002, and his music has been likened to “the country and folk that came out of both Laurel Canyon and, more so, the British Isles in the mid-seventies.” (Stuart Derdeyn, The Province). In live performance, Chris draws on his abilities as a highly skilled singer, storyteller and musician (guitar, harmonica, ukulele) to deliver a show that is both captivating and unique. Chris remains actively involved in the local music scene in and around his hometown of Vancouver where he plays a variety of venues, organizes and hosts community music events, and delivers school programs in songwriting and creativity.”
Irwin’s Version: Irwin plays flat-pick and finger-style folk and blues and some reggae on a well-loved 1976 Norman acoustic, story songs mostly: John Prine, Pete Seeger, Paul Simon, Jesse Winchester, Patty Griffin, and Bruces Springsteen and Cockburn, along with some Canadiana folk and the occasional version of a familiar pop tune.
