Rick Ford & Friends @ Roebuck Hotel | England | United Kingdom

Rick’s tradition is that of the singer/songwriter and storyteller and his influences can be detected in his songs and his playing but his work possesses a startling sense of originality and his musical influences seem to mesh together with a timelessness that like the blues, folk and country music that he loves goes beyond fashion into that hard gut-bucket reality that forms the currency of our lives. His songs are steeped in the wild beauty of the hills, valleys and moorlands of his beloved Peak District countryside; at once simple, raw and earthy and yet at the same time filled with an indefinable sense of poignancy and yearning. Though some of Rick’s songs are heartbreaking in their unflinching honesty, the insight he brings into his portrayal of the human condition is riveting.
