Ewan McLennan first emerged onto the UK folk scene with the release of his debut album ‘Rags & Robes’.

The recording gained much critical praise, described by Maverick as ‘a collection of truly captivating songs’, and featured in MOJO’s top ten folk albums of 2010.

After an appearance on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show and a televised performance for the Celtic Connections Festival at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, his debut was capped by winning the BBC Folk Award’s Horizon Award in 2011.

Ewan’s music was immediately noted for its depth of feeling and sincerity, something which comes from his respect and passion for the music he plays.

Whether singing haunting traditional Scottish ballads or weaving the powerful stories that make-up his own songs, Ewan’s unique, moving and earthy voice is always compelling.

Ewan plays the Hebden Bridge Trades Club on Thursday, July 10. The show begins at 8pm. Tickets are £8 for members/£11 for others on 01422 845265 or go to www.thetradesclub.com or www.wegottickets.com.
