Reflections of a Yorkshire Man


He plays acoustic guitar and covers some of the greats like Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs, as well as his friend, Paul Simon, who Chris has known for years – since Paul first visited England, where Chris was a close friend of Sally, of Paul’s “Sally’s Theme.”  

Chris’ voice is outstanding, melodious, beautiful, and memorable.  

Chris is also a collector of guitars, owning several from independent luthiers, such as Jamie Kinscherff in the United States. His favorite music stores are The Acoustic Music Company in Brighton, England; Mandolin Brothers in Staten Island, New York; and Hill Country Guitars in Whimberley, Texas. He has owned about 80 musical instruments in his lifetime, and right now owns 12 acoustic guitars. In 2007, Chris displayed some of his guitars at the Cheltenham Acoustic Guitar Show.

Chris has K&K pickups installed in all of his guitars, and he prefers John Pearse strings and Shubb capos. He uses a Bose L1 Compact PA with a Shure Beta 59 vocal mic, although for house concerts he uses no electrics.

Chris plays other instruments, as well as the guitar, including the banjo and the walkabout dulcimer.  Right now he is learning to play the mountain dulcimer. He is a multi-talented individual.

Chris majored in business at university and owns his own firm. He has three children, a daughter and two sons, all of whom are grown.
