About Chris Quinn

Maverick, one of Britain’s leading music magazines called him “A Master of the Acoustic Guitar and a Quality Songwriter”.

Live, Chris’ shows cover a huge range of acoustic roots music alongside his own songs. From authentic interpretations of traditional and contemporary Celtic and British folk songs to high speed bluegrass flatpicking and from style delta blues and swinging jazz songs to instrumental solo guitar pieces.

Chris has spent the last decade touring worldwide taking in shows at venues like BB Kings Blues in New York, Cambridge Folk Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival and London’s Royal Albert Hall.
