Clive has earned a reputation as one of the most talented, innovative and respected names in the music industry. He does, as The Independent astutely observed, “the lot” – not just a consummate songwriter he is also a top guitarist, keyboard player, singer and skilled producer.
His music was met with great acclaim at last year’s Lanark Music Festival where he played at various venues over the weekend.
In a career spanning nearly three decades he was a founder-member of the cult Manchester rock quartet Any Trouble, signed to Stiff Records and then EMI America in the eighties, going on to make five albums with singer Christine Collister; a partnership described by Rolling Stone as “the state of the art in British folk-rock
As well as being a former member of the Richard Thompson Band, Clive has also performed with Eddi Reader and Boo Hewerdine and toured with Nanci Griffith and the Blue Moon Orchestra and Dennis Locorriere of Dr Hook fame as lead guitarist and musical director. He has recently been on tour, opening for the
Jools Holland Band.
