A FOLK singer who started out on the streets of Europe and has entertained audiences all over the globe is coming to St Neots on Tuesday (January 11).

The singer-songwriter brings his unique brand of folk music to the Priory Centre, with a show starting at 8.15pm hosted by St Neots Folk Club.

The club describes Morton’s and his show as “dynamic and intense, as well as approachable and fun-loving.”

“Pete sings from the heart, delivering songs that tell compelling stories and speak of the human condition from a very unique perspective.

“With a passionate, strong voice and strident guitar style, traditional songs often rub shoulders with Pete’s current writing with remarkable ease. His songs are an unruly mix of humour, politics, love and social comment, wrapping their way around the folk tradition.”

A veteran of five original solo albums and a project album of traditional songs, Morton has received glowing reviews throughout his career. His CD “Hunting the Heart” was a Mojo folk album of the year in 2000, while more recent releases “Swarthmoor” and “Flying an Unknown Flag” have also been well received. In 2009, his album “Casa Abierta – Ten Songs in Different Tongues” received four stars in Mojo.

The show at the Priory Centre will see Morton perform from his extensive back catalogue, including folk favourites such as Another Train, The Shepherds Song, Six Billion Eccentrics, The Sock on the Line and the anthemic When We Sing Together.
