Celtic Music Radio’s Moira Kerr caught-up with legend Ralph McTell last week when he played The Buccleuch Centre, Langholm in the Scottish Borders.
One of the great storytellers, Ralph McTell is now celebrating more than 40 years on the road. 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 1993, Nanci Griffith recorded ‘From Clare to Here’ on her Grammy Award winning album and in 2002 he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
You can listen to Moira with Ralph McTell this Saturday morning after 10.00am
