Clive Cowan is an established musician and singer/songwriter whose roots are in Folk-Rock, but with eclectic influences ranging from hard rock to classical. Has played many stages big and small: concerts, festivals, functions, pubs & clubs, restaurants, and private homes. He creates a full sound using subtle guitar effects and vocal harmonies, and adds his own style to an eclectic mix of classic favourite songs as well as his own compositions. He is able to provide one of two modern and smart PA systems: a discrete state-of-the-art JBL linear-array system or a larger traditional pair of powered 15-inch speakers on stands with a quality Allen & Heath mixing desk.

Clive has played regularly at the Leigh Folk Festival (Britain's largest free folk festival) and at the prestigious Cambridge Rock Festival. He has opened as support to many bands including 'The Strawbs', 'Waking The Witch', 'Amy Wadge' and 'Fleetwood Bac'. His music has been played on the radio and he has a CD entitled 'Live & Solo'. On the now defunct 'Original MySpace' social media music site, Clive's profile received over 40,000 hits with 15,000 plays of his tracks worldwide!

Would you like an informal, friendly and personal evening with Clive surrounded by your chosen friends? He is also happy to perform private house concerts in the comfort of your own home with your chosen guests. This works out much less costly per head than an evening at a theatre, club or restaurant and makes for a very special and entertaining event!
