The Man Himself AJC
Anthony John Clarke: (Singer/songwriter, sublime raconteur.)
“We all look at life, people and things. Anthony John knows how to SEE what we look at, and uses his depth of compassion and insight to write songs which make us look again. Like tidal water, he is gently but inexorably powerful.” — Simon Nicol
” He can charm his way into your affections before the first song is finished” —Ian Bruce
“Anthony John makes you feel every emotion. Absolutely fabulous entertainer!!!!!” —-Jenny Williams
“You think he is singing a love song and all of a sudden he turns it into something else.” —-Alan Power
Not only has he written four of the most popular songs on the folk scene – ‘The Only Life Gloria Knows’, ‘The Broken Years’, ‘Walking On Sunday’ and the immortal ‘Tuesday Night is Always Karaoke’, but he remains in essence the reason that folk clubs and festivals continue to thrive! He is hilarious, serious, compassionate, irreverent, brave, challenging, and a proper guitarist with an instantly recognisable voice.
