Anyone who fingerpicks guitar wants to play like Ralph McTell, and no-one else can write songs of such warmth nor sing them so wll. I have loved his work for thirty years, and it has become as much a part of myself as Bob Dylan’s has. Here is the life behind the art. Read it
Louis de Bernieres
A wise and gifted genre-bender, singer-songwriter and author, Ralph McTell has mastered the difficult art of simplicity and we should all be thankful to have him on our side
McTell’s autobiography, like his songs, can evoke a whole world of experience in a few telling details. This wonderful memoir is a magical cocktail of emotional recollection, optimistic resilience and zest for life.
