Other Information:

John Harper began playing in folk clubs in the Chester area about 40 years ago! Since then he has played in theatres, folk clubs, bars and restaurants mainly interpreting other people's music but when he felt he had something new to say he performed his own songs.

He was known in the Lancaster area as having a powerful yet sensitive vocal style accompanied by some imaginative guitar work.

He has played support in some of the larger venues in the area to such diverse talents as Jez Lowe, Ashley Hutchings, the late Isaac Guillory and recently, Cara Dillon. Harvey Andrews asked John to join him to sing "In The Darkness" as Harvey's encore in Doncaster.

He played regularly in the Robert Gillow pub, a Lancaster venue known for its excellent music.
