The inspirational and prolific folk hero Chris T-T heads out on a far-reaching tour this month performing a variety of shows.
The majority of shows will be solo, performing songs from his extensive back catalogue spanning seven studio albums, including Capital and Love Is Not Rescue both released through Xtra Mile Recordings.
