Our March Sundays in the Bar features John Forrester.
John sings songs of travel, adventure, lust, discovery, friendship, love & weather. A fine performer with an easy relaxed delivery, a warm openhearted voice, an unshowy guitar style and an infectious personality. Having toured Europe extensively his songs have a strong sense of location & motion.
His 2014 album ‘Outsider’ received many rave reviews, and was described as ‘a contemporary take on folk and roots that is steeped in the great traditions. Its themes are universal; and it’s a testament to patience, exploration and determination, but still has time for humour and humanity’.
As well as his own shows, he has opened for many artists including Show Of Hands, Lindisfarne, Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin, Ninebarrow, Gilmore & Roberts, Nick Harper, Rory McLeod, TV Smith, Sonny Condell, Robb Johnson, John Kirkpatrick and Fate The Juggler.
“takes me back to the real days of bedsit heroes and singer/songwriters who can put over emotion and tell stories… gentle and impassioned… in a world filled with music that is loud, boastful and completely ignores the listener, this is a wonderful relief, an album that talks to the listener” – Music News
