Paul McClure is a singer songwriter from Rutland, England.
"Remarkable songwriter...we should all work on helping make him the star he deserves to be." Mojo Magazine
Known for his intimate, storytelling concerts Paul’s characters and story lines - in particular the loves, laughs and losses that have come his way - though lyrically often brutally honest, nearly always allow the humorous side of any situation come forward.
"Rutland Troubadour, aka Paul McClure. A master of the stage, whether it's an intimate house concert or a full-on festival set... interspersing his trademark dry humour between some excellent and thoughtful songs his shows are a delight, making him one of the most in-demand performers in the country and a significant player on the UK roots scene." - Americana UK
McClure has clocked up the miles finding no shortage of places willing to have him play with shows at folk clubs, venues, festivals and front rooms including acclaimed performances at Cambridge Folk Festival, Ramblin’ Roots, Maverick and Truck Festivals - sharing the stage with such folk and Americana musicians as Justin Townes Earle, Ian Felice, and The Young 'Uns. (extensively touring in not only venues but also a large number of house concerts hosted by fans in his attempt to both connect with his audience in a close and intimate setting and also bring the sound of live music back into the home.)
With enthusiastic support from Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 show, more festival appearances across the summer – including Glastonbury - and with another album of new songs due for release in June 2019 on UK Americana label Clubhouse Records, things are looking up for the Rutland Troubadour...
