ZAZA MUSIC PRESENTS: CHRIS WOOD
Longtime champion of English music, songwriter, composer, raconteur, thinker, musician, and outstanding singer Chris Wood was rather aptly described by The Irish Times as “the renaissance man of English folk.”
While widely admired and respected by his peers on the U.K. folk scene, he was for many years largely unknown by the folk-loving public at large. That all changed with his landmark album The Lark Descending, an entirely solo acoustic collection, which marked him not only as one of England’s most important and influential folksingers with a uniquely subtle approach to performance, but also an immensely gifted songwriter. His song “One in a Million,” a warm parable about love in a fish-and-chips shop written with storyteller Hugh Lupton, won Best Original Song at the BBC Folk Awards.
“Breathtaking…Wood is a musical documentarian of immense complexity and subtlety.” ***** 5 Stars IRISH TIMES
