Gordon Tyrall - Biography

Apart from a brief foray into the real world of work in the late 1970s, which I found not to be altogether to my liking, I have made my living playing music in the glorious world of acoustic folk music. I have been in and out of various bands and duos, but have been a solo performer most of the time - singer, guitarist and flute player.

Latest news is the release of my first full-length book, a memoir based around Whitby Folk Week called Around The Blooming Heather".
