MODERN day folk troubadour, Ewan McLennan, has a date at the Wychwood Folk Club, as a stop on his autumn tour.

The Scottish balladeer will perform songs from all three of his studio albums, as well as airing new material.

A spokesman said: "Ewan McLennan has come to be known as a guitarist at the very forefront of his generation, a troubadour that can move audiences with his passion and pathos, and a songwriter for whom social justice is still a burning issue.

"He will perform a song or two from his most recent project, a much-anticipated collaboration with the journalist and author George Monbiot."

The spokesman added: "Having learnt from and worked with both Martin Simpson and Dick Gaughan over recent years, it’s evident in Ewan’s guitar playing and in his music more generally that he has absorbed and inherited a great deal at first hand, from the older generation of ‘folk greats’ before carving his own path.

"In his short years as a touring musician Ewan McLennan has become renowned for his intimate and captivating live performances. Delivered with a subtle pathos and a rare skill on the guitar this troubadour will spin timeless songs, both new and old."

The date for the diary is Saturday December 17, from 8pm, at the Wychwood Folk Club, The Swan, Ascott-under-Wychwood.
