Marco Woolf Sextet
This event is part of the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival 2022.
Main act is Marco Woolf and his sextet. Support is from Sarah Heneghan
Heavily influenced by a blend of jazz and folk by artists such as John Martyn and Nick Drake, Marco Woolf writes delicate, introspective songs. Influenced by the likes of Nick Drake and John Martyn, the music that Marco Woolf makes can prove similarly complex to categorise. His lyrics have earned him a reputation as a self-evidently skilled storyteller – and his thoughtful instrumentation too is just as crucial to his compositions. His latest release, “Francine, I” – issued via Phlexx Records in July – follows an African woman as she migrates West for the sake of her children and perfectly typifies the trademark punch of tenderness that makes Marco’s music so spiritual.
