Faversham Folk Club
Mick Ryan & Paul Downes
Ticket Price £8 / £9

Paul's sensitive and yet fun approach to his performances put him among the most
respected artists on the music scene today. He has been introduced as one of the greatest acoustic guitarists in the world. It is easy to see why when you see the dazzling array of styles he performs with effortless brilliance, but at the same time he considers himself as a singer of songs, rather than a guitar technician. With eight albums with bands, three highly acclaimed solo albums and over 150 session credits under his belt, Paul guarantees a great live performance.

Paul will be joined by Mick Ryan, with whom he has performed in a duo for a number of years. Mick is well known on the folk scene as a fine singer of traditional and original songs He was described by Folk Roots as 'definitely the most underrated singer in the country'. Having written both comic and serious material for the very poular band "Crows" in the 1980's, he has since written for radio and a series of highly successful folk musicals: 'A Tollpuddle Man' (with Graham Moore); 'A Day's Work'; 'The Voyage'; 'Tanks for the Memory' and, recently, 'The Navvy's Wife.'

“One of the most able and talented, yet understated artists on the folk scene” THE FOLK DIARY
