Chris Ford

The Civic Arts Centre is starting its New Year programme of bringing the best of new music and life entertainment to you with Chris Ford on Saturday, February 2.

Chris is a real story teller and his voice has a timbre and quality that is both soulful and pure and easily resonates with the listener long after the song is over.

After teaching himself to play guitar and piano Chris had only one real desire and that was to write and perform his own songs. While on a mad cap adventure in America Chris made his live debut in the New York folk clubs in and around Greenwich Village.

This sudden move to performing was the result of a chance interview with John Cale, formerly of The Velvet Underground, which Chris managed to secure for a French magazine.

Supporting Chris on this evening is local singer songwriter Callum Aspinall who is the Head Boy of Rhyddings High School, Oswaldtwistle.

Chris Ford is offering readers the chance to hear some of his music with free downloads on his website. Go to www.chrisford.co.uk/freedownload to download two tracks from his newest CD The Warp Glass.
Tickets are available by ringing 01254 398319 or via www.civicartscentre.co.uk
