Cheshire Folk presents Rory Ellis in Concert.
Rory Ellis is the quintessential Australian Alternative Country artist. Buckets of talent, heaps of stories to tell and almost impossible to pigeonhole. He’s got blues man in him, soul belter, red-dirt country, home-grown folkie and a voice that can raise the dead. Rory has performed at major festivals Australia wide for many years and internationally in Europe and the UK having done 9 massive tours there. 6 media acclaimed albums, a wealth of road smarts having performed alongside greats like Richie Havens, Eric Bibb and the Robert Cray Band. Appeared at Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival couple of years ago!! He has arrived in the UK on an open ended passport!! Welcome to the UK Rory!

Joining us as support the no less brilliant, Jonathan Tarplee. Jonathan had initial success when a BBC Horizon show used some of his work for incidental. He went on to perform in bands and solo shows supporting the likes of Nick Harper and Attila the Stockbroker and playing venues mainly around the North including The Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival, The Greystones, Liverpool International Festival, The International Eisteddfod, The Lomax, The Nantwich Words & Music Festival, Manchester’s Northern Quarter. His song No Tobacco, No Jesus, an infectious earworm with his band The Blue Yellows, became the summer anthem of 6 Towns Radio before Jonathan re-emerged with his solo album as a contemporary, edgy folk-troubadour with a soulful intensity.
