Event details: Ralph McTell, celebrating 30 years on the road, makes a welcome return to Cambridge.

For this concert McTell will concentrate on his self-penned repertoire and return to the live format he and his audiences love most - one man, his guitar, and his songs. After ‘resting' his most popular songs, such as the much-loved Clare to Here and the million-selling Streets of London, McTell is looking forward to giving them a new airing. But the concert will also contain rarer gems, and several of the songs in this show have never been played on stage before this tour.

McTell has an uncanny ability to capture in song timeless truths which are universally appealing and reach across generations. Concert-goers not only share in McTell's finely-honed sensitivity, but are given an insight into the man himself: As he puts it, "These songs are what I am."

Cambridge music lovers are in for a treat when prolific and gifted songwriter Ralph McTell, now celebrating 30 years on the road, makes a welcome return to the city. "I've always loved playing in Cambridge", he says, "because the audience is particularly warm and appreciative."
