Chris Foster was one of the best performers to emerge from the British folk scene in the 1970s.

He has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and the US, appearing at festivals concerts, clubs and on radio and TV.

Chris is known for the fine quality of his voice and a vocal style that "incorporates a subtle use of decoration with an intricate and exciting sense of rythmic patterns" [June Tabor]

STOP PRESS !

Chris Foster Vinyl albums finally released on CD!

The world is full of surprises and odd occurrences one of the stranger ones to come my way this year is the interest shown by a Japanese company in releasing 'Layers' and All Things in Common' the two Chris Foster Vinyl albums originally released on Topic Records in 1977 and 1979. 'Layers' is out now and 'All Things in Common' is due to follow in July.

The CD's are packed in a card sleeve contained in a plastic wallet so they look like a miniature facsimile of the original vinyl albums. The sleeve contains an insert sheet with all the original sleeve notes in Japanese and English.

Copies of these rare imports will be exclusively available by direct mail from Green Man Productions at a cost of 16 sterling including post and packing in the UK and 18 sterling elsewhere.
