Reg’s clever and imaginative lyrics have earned him the title of “Master Storyteller” (PennyBlack Music) and led Mike Harding (Mike Harding Folk Show) to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as “one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced”.
Whether it’s a village hall or the Albert Hall, Reg brings to the stage a collection of extremely beautiful songs, performed with humour and depth, and sung with the voice of an angel.
Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people, through his songs and performance, on a really human level.
His words and music paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.
Here’s a small selection of quotes from Faraway People reviews:
“Every song from the gentle, enchanting genius is worth its weight in gold.” Mick Tems, Folk Wales
“Reg proves himself one of the key songwriters of our age.” David Kidman, Fatea Magazine
“An insight into the human spirit and empathy the the plight of ordinary people.” Froots Magazine
“A deep well of compassion and insight into the human heart and spirit.” Mike Davies, Folk Radio UK
“These are songs to really listen to, to make you think and remember.” John Waltham, The Living Tradition Magazine
“…for all its soft reflectiveness it hits as hard as anything you’ll hear.” Dai Jeffries Folking.com
2017 was a year in which Geoff Lakeman covered Reg’s song England Green and England Grey in his debut album After All These Years.
Reg has also been busy co-writing with Seth Lakeman for Seth’s next album and also recorded a compilation album with Stockfisch Records in Germany (still to be released).
The Living Tradition magazine featured Reg.
