One of the great storytellers, Ralph McTell, returns to Australia in March 2019 with new album Hill of Beans. Known for his virtuoso guitar style, he is a prolific and gifted songwriter. With a style that invites you into a unique world, he weaves a narrative that is both significant and poignant. Ralph made his debut in 1968 with the album Eight Frames a Second. An influential figure in the folk music scene since the 1960’s, McTell's words and music weave narratives of depth and compassion, most famously in his classic 1974 song Streets of London, for which he won an Ivor Novello Award. In 2002, he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Ralph's Celtic connections go deep. A veteran of more than 50 album releases, his back catalogue is brimming with songs inspired by the Emerald Isle and its people, from the immigration anthem From Clare to Here to Mr Connaughton, based upon a neighbourhood Irishman who helped spark a love of music in the young Ralph May, as he was then known.
