In the folk-acoustic singer-songwriter tradition, Westcountry Songwriters Circle entertain the audience with songs, three-part vocal harmony,  melodies, fingerstyle guitar, mandolin and acoustic guitar music from a variety of styles incorporating political, social, philosophical, and literary influences.

 

A unique performance by three of the finest songwriters from the Southwest.

Performing in the BBC4 Songwriters Circle format

All the performers on-stage together and take it in turns to perform, mostly accompanied by the others.

 

“…It’s a great concept, works with beautiful informality. They are all not only wonderful musicians, but also highly entertaining raconteurs…”

 

“…finest songwriters from the southwest …”
