Richard Grainger

“One of the most dynamic, entertaining and creative performers on the international folk scene today”.

‘Richard Grainger’is a folk singer in the truest sense’; a versatile singer of traditional and original songs, a guitarist with a unique style, and a highly accomplished exponent of unaccompanied song too. He made his recording debut on Fellside FE038 ‘Herbs on the Heart’ in 1984 to much critical acclaim. Folk Roots hailed him as ‘another Carthy or Nic Jones’.

However, Richard has steered his own path; addressing his songs toward his own local heritage, environment and to the cultural and industrial changes in his native Teesside and North Yorkshire on The North East Coast of England.

Richard Grainger writes songs with evocative and moving tunes and you feel that they are immersed in that part of the North east where he lives- Cleveland- the land of Moorland and Coast contrasted with heavily industrialised Teesside. Besides a large traditional repertoire including some original interpretations of songs such as ‘Polly on the Shore’ and ‘Gatherin Rushes’. Grainger also possesses songs from his own pen such as the rousing ‘Scarborough Fishermen’, the beautiful ‘Mary of the Dale’ and the powerful ‘Last Light on the Row’.

‘Live’ he draws from this vast and varied repertoire entertaining his audiences with true stories and his typically dry humour. Most of all he sings with power and passion and its difficult not to join in with some of his big choruses.
