"Gerry Colvin is a writer of great substance who is able to give us something that has been largely missing in English Music for a long time. His subjects and characters are clearly defined and his songs create strong images and stories which can make us both laugh and cry in the same breath. This man is unique and unforgettable. The songs are brilliant. He should be a household name. Go see him.” Phil Beer, Show of Hands

Folk-pop legend Gerry Colvin must be one of the most endearing and energetic musicians on the planet, just as much at home playing small clubs as he is supporting Status Quo on their Aquostic Live Tour.  This multi-talented singer-songwriter performs all his own material, combining catchy melodies with thoughtful lyrics on love, society, angst and Johnny Cash!  His be-suited on stage performance combines Frank Sinatra, Lee Evans, and the afore-mentioned Man in Black.  Genius?  Madcap?  Maverick? Yes, all of these things…and a lot, lot more.

A stellar musical CV includes co-writing with Alison Moyet, being a John Peel favourite with his 80’s band Terry and Gerry (recently reformed), winning best band (with his band Colvinquarmby) at Fairport’s Cropredy Festival as well as the Hancock Award for best live folk act.  A Glastonbury stalwart, he has played several times and also acted as compere on more than one occasion. 


As his agent and occasional tour manager for 5 years, I never tire of his very own brand of loony genius. In these current challenging times, Gerry is a full force blast of joy and positivity



Gerry will by joined by multi instrumentalist Lyndon Webb.
