Chris Wood

Chris Wood


Chris Wood is an uncompromising folk songwriter whose music reveals his love for the unofficial history of English speaking people.

With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition together with his own contemporary parables. His most recent album _So Much to Defend_ includes reflections on minor league football, empty nest syndrome, learning to swim, and, not least, the gecko as a metaphor for contemporary society.

_Hollow Point_, his chilling ballad of the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, won a BBC Folk Award (he’s won six in total) and emphatically secured Wood’s place as a serious speech-master for the unremarked history of England.
