Based in East Anglia, on the most easterly point of the British Isles, singer, musician and writer, John Ward, has established himself as a prolific and formidable songwriter on the folk, roots and acoustic music scene. Performing an eclectic mix of music, John tours extensively across the UK and beyond, most often with his Trio or 4-piece band, and sometimes solo. He is a fine musician, specialising in acoustic guitar, bass guitar, harmonica and bodhran. John has always lived by the sea and spent some years of his childhood in Southampton and has romantic memories of watching the huge liners come and go from the shore of Southampton Water. He has lived most of his life in the most easterly town of the British Isles and feels a strong connection with the sea. His interest in the British coastline and the local history of his home port town of Lowestoft and the surrounding area has inspired many of his folk songs. John will perform in marquee 2 on Saturday afternoon.
