ESSENTIAL FOLK & A BIT OF A NATIONAL TREASURE
“Steeped in tradition, yet always striving for a new day, So Much to Defend is a glorious album proving that Chris Wood is a bit of a national treasure.” ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE
Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the unofficial history of the English-speaking people. With gentle intelligence, he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. A lifelong autodidact whose independent streak shines through everything he does. Always direct and unafraid to speak his mind.
On stage Chris has the air of a craftsman who no longer needs to be precious about his art. Without any apparent effort he reaches deep into an enviable repertoire of songs before revealing another gem.
