Prepare to be enthralled!

Legendary Streets of London singer-songwriter Ralph McTell is touring Australia now and will perform three Tasmanian shows this week!


Returning to Australia for the first time in five years, UK musical legend Ralph McTell is heading to Tasmania to perform the much-loved classics from his illustrious career that spans over six decades, armed simply with his songs, his guitar and his stories.

Playfully titled the “Streets of Oz Tour”, the iconic "Streets of London" singer-songwriter will perform at Ulverstone Rowing Club (Thursday, February 15), Boathouse Centre Launceston (Friday, February 16) and Franklin Palais Theatre (Saturday, February 17).

The unassuming singer-songwriter is a prolific touring and recording artist with a knack for illuminating the present and the road ahead with a strong connection to a shared, storied, past. McTell is an artist who has always defined his own artistic term, his music emanating grace, experience and learning, natural poise and deep substance with harmonic and melodic riches contained in voice, songs and six stringed guitar glory.

Audiences all over the world still flock to hear and sing along to the timeless classic that catapulted him to global fame. Fondly abbreviated to “Streets”, the melodic beauty and cold hard truth of the song keeps it forever relevant.

McTell also tells his incredible life stories to enraptured audiences with song and banter. From hitchhiking with Rod, then known as Mod Stewart, playing Isle of Wight Festival alongside Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, a crap game with Tom Waits in LA, an Ivor Novello and numerous folk awards.

But it's McTell's excellence as finger picking guitarist and writer of pointed, empathetic songs that has always guided him. His songs have covered a broad stylistic waterfront including the blistering early autistic awareness of 'Michael In The Garden', priceless immigrant lament 'From Clare To Here', 'Bentley & Craig' the social injustice ballad born on the streets where he was raised, led him to support the ultimately successful campaign for a posthumous pardon.

Many more songs besides, as worthy of attention as his most famed composition, are threaded through his fastidious and measured life work.

This is a not-to-be-missed musical experience!
