Folk singer-songwriter Neil McSweeney emerged from the flowering of Sheffield music that gave the world the likes of Slow Club and Richard Hawley and has since established himself as ‘a songwriter of rare ability’ (R2 magazine). Setting lyrics that deal with the contrasts and contradictions of life to romantic melodies as hopeful as they are melancholy, McSweeney’s finely crafted songs have been championed by his peers as well as across national radio and mainstream and specialist press. 

Since the release of his last album, Cargo, McSweeney has made increasingly big waves on the English folk scene picking up main stage festival appearances and collaborating with the likes of Jon Boden and Fay Hield. His fourth record, A Coat Worth wearing was released through Hudson Records in March this year.

McSweeney’s songs combine the emotional depth of the Romantic poets with the weird and wonderful detail of Dutch genre painting. He is a true one-off - Folk Radio UK
