Graham Carter is a Traditional Singer/Guitarist who is equally at home performing songs of England, Scotland or Ireland.
He originally hails from Poole in Dorset but for the last twelve years has been based in Scotland where he has become well known on the Folk Scene. Indeed as well as being a popular folk club guest, he is the main organiser for both Strathaven Folk Club and Strathaven Folk Festival.
Growing up in a musical household he was often exposed to folk songs at family gatherings around the piano. He began playing guitar and learning folk songs in earnest in his late teens. Graham has gained a reputation as a powerful and compelling performer and considers his many influences to include the likes of Peggy Seeger, Martin Carthy, Joan Baez, Luke Kelly, Ewen MacColl and, of course, Bob Dylan.
“A voice reminiscent of some of the great old English Folk Singers” – Ian Walker
“He has that lovely relaxed style of singing that reminds me of happy evenings in West Country pubs.” Sheena Wellington
