His music combines traditional folk, with an inevitable focus on the music of Scotland, as well as his own self-penned songs that are receiving critical acclaim in their own right. BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding has said of Ewan, ‘he sings beautifully, with great sincerity and great empathy, he's terrific!’. His guitar playing, described as 'stunning' , is influenced by the rigour and technique from his years of studying classical guitar, while retaining a unique and compelling sound in which his immersion in folk music is evident. His debut album, Rags & Robes, has been receiving glowing reviews. Described as 'a collection of truly captivating songs', it was chosen as a 'Top Ten Album of 2010' by MOJO and has won numerous accolades in radio and print media. http://www.youtube.com/embed/E8SoYluSVjg Rosemary Lippard & Tim Graham Singer Rosemary Lippard grew up in Aberdare, South Wales. She has been an avid folk fan since the age of 13 (when she was introduced to what she describes as "the marvel that is Joan Baez"), and is greatly inspired by all generations of women of folk from June Tabor, Shirley Collins and Anne Briggs to Lucy Ward, Jackie Oates and Fay Hield. Tim Grahams’ guitar playing has "shades of Bert Jansch and Martin Simpson" (Glastonbury Folk Club) and combined with a unique vocal style wins new fans wherever he goes. Over the last year Tim has performed with Ed Boyd, Gren Bartley, Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts and James Findlay as well as recording his debut solo album http://www.soundcloud.com/timgraham.2 "Perfect" Trowbridge Folk Club Piers Haslam East Dulwich resident and guitarist-singer Piers Haslam has been going to folk festivals since he was small.
