TOUR ANNOUNCE // Ryley Walker To Tour The UK With Legendary Bassist Danny Thompson


February 2016 will see two of contemporary folk’s finest artists, Ryley Walker and Danny Thompson, take to the road for eleven UK shows and what is sure to be an unmissable collaboration.

Ryley Walker has been compared to many of folk’s greats yet has a musical style all his own. Still only in his mid-20s, he’s well on his way to becoming a major artist as the rave reviews for his recent album, Primrose Green, attest. For this very special tour, Ryley will be joined onstage by legendary double-bassist Danny Thompson, one of the founding members of Pentangle, who has performed with the likes of Richard Thompson, Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, John Martyn and many more, helping to create the lyrical and jazz-flecked astral folk that so influenced Walker close to half a century later. As well as performing works from his two acclaimed albums, the shows will likely include some new Ryley Walker material. Expect a memorable night as these two immensely talented artists come together to create something exceptional.
