An Evening with Ralph McTell

Playhouse Whitley Bay – Friday 20th October 2017 – 7.30 pm

Best known for his international hit, Streets of London, Ralph McTell has been a stalwart of the British acoustic music scene for over 50 years.  A career that has spanned street busking across Europe, to solo shows at the Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall and The Sydney Opera House, McTell has a fifty year, 350 song career.

Known for his virtuoso guitar style, he is primarily 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’ and in 1974 the release of ‘Streets of London’ earned him an Ivor Novello Award. In 2002 he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.  This tour will see Ralph playing songs from his full catalogue including from his forthcoming album West 4th Street and Jones.
