Ian A. Anderson

Ian A. Anderson began his music career in the 1960s, influenced by old country blues players, before taking a swerve in the ’70s into so- called ‘psych folk’. He eventually settled into a personal style that draws from traditional folk, blues, old-time and world roots music. Ian received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Folk Alliance International in 2019 and the Gold Badge Award of the EFDSS in 2015. “A vitally important figure in the history of folk, roots, acoustic and world music, it is surely time for a full and appropriate recognition of his pivotal contribution.” (Folk Radio UK). Ian will perform on Nightingale stage on Sunday evening.
