Ewan McLennan has come to be known as a guitarist at the very forefront of his generation; a troubadour, balladeer and storyteller cut in the old style; a singer that can move audiences with his passion and pathos; and a songwriter for whom social justice is still a burning issue.
From a BBC Horizon Award to his performances on the acclaimed Transatlantic Sessions, recent years have been marked by numerous awards and accolades for his music.
In 2011 Ewan won the prestigious Horizon Award at the BBC Folk Awards then the Alistair Hulett Memorial Prize for Political Songwriting in 2013. This also led on to him being asked to be part of the acclaimed transatlantic sessions in 2013, which saw him performing and recording alongside some of the world’s finest folk musicians. http://www.ewanmclennan.co.uk/
