& Special Guests…

Born in Central London in 1983, to English and Irish parents, Wolf released his first self-produced and written E.P in 2002 aged just 19. Since then he has released 5 critically acclaimed albums, as well as last year’s acoustic "Sundark and Riverlight", a re-recording of a selection of his songs to mark his ten year anniversary. He has toured the world constantly to an ever growing rapturous audience, whilst constantly changing and exploring new sounds, songwriting styles, visual identities and production.

Now back home in the UK and setting up a new studio, Patrick will play a few choice shows around winter solstice. It will be a chance to hear some of what was written during his journey plus new arrangements of songs from the winter realms of his songwriting and select covers of his favourite winter songs by other artists.

On this tour Patrick will be playing piano, the tenor guitar, harp, viola, kantale, theremin and re-introducing electronics to his live set.
