Lineup and Details for Michael Chapman, Nick Ellis
Mellowtone & Ceremony Concerts
The legendary MICHAEL CHAPMAN will return to Liverpool in April 2018, in association with Ceremony Concerts.
'A master guitarist and songwriter' Mojo Magazine.
Veteran British songwriter and guitar sage Michael Chapman ranks among the innovative midcentury English guitarists who transposed the atmosphere and syntax of the blues to a British context through reinvention and deconstruction, rather than imitation. His music is suffused with the crooked logic, unfulfilled longing, and existential danger of dreams, shaded with his own wry sensibility of Northern darkness. Like a peaty whiskey, the smoky gravitas of his playing and singing has grown more trenchant and entrenched with age. His emergence in 1967 as a self-taught jazz freak, recovering art school student, and part-time photography teacher on the Cornish folk circuit preceded a series of classic late 1960s and ’70s albums for Harvest, Deram, and Decca.
(But whatever you do, don’t call him a folkie; he feels more kinship with the improvisatory outer orbits of jazz, blues, and the avant-garde.)
