Chris Foster is a master of his trade. Alongside Nic Jones, Dick Gaughan and June Tabor, he established himself in the 1970's as one finest interpreters of the traditional ballads of the British Isles
Chris has a distinctive voice. He provides guitar accompaniments that range from fine filigree lines to beautifully paced punchy, rhythmic counterpoint harmony, weaving words and music together to complement the action of the story. He has an engaging enthusiasm for his music that draws the audience into his performance.
'As one who has witnessed the development of 'English' guitar accompaniment to traditional songs, I have always ranked Chris as one of our most exciting interpreters…. My old vinyl copies of his 2 Topic albums remain precious.Chris remains a consummate artist.'Graham Lobb – The Living Tradition.
'His is one of the most distinctive voices in English folk music, totally sure and engaging, with some of the most accomplished and sensitive guitar accompaniments that you are likely to hear. A mesmeric performer.' Vic Smith - The Folk Diary
