Ralph McTell

How can you tell us that you're lonely, and say for you that the sun don't shine?” 

Let us take you by the hand….. to Costa Festival Portugal, where you will be surrounded by friends, bathed in sunshine and in the company of one of the finest songwriters of all time! 

We are so delighted, chuffed and honoured that Ralph is joining us in Portugal in October 2023

One of the great storytellers, Ralph McTell, is now celebrating more than 50 years on the road. Known for his virtuoso guitar style, he is primarily a prolific and gifted songwriter. With a style that invites you into a unique world, he weaves a narrative that is both significant and poignant.

Ralph made his debut in 1968 with the album ‘Eight Frames a Second’ and in 1974 the release of ‘Streets of London’ earned him an Ivor Novello Award.

In 2002 he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Welcome to your first Costa, Ralph!
