Guitar virtuoso coming to Sooke

Soothing the soul through the power of musical strings

This December edition of the Sooke Folk Music Society’s Coffee House event presents Thomas P. Radcliffe, a “musician’s musician.”

His passion and sensitivity exude from the strings when he plays and his voice brings the love and message in a song directly to your heart.

Originally from St. Louis, Radcliffe has lived in and travelled to many places in the U.S. and Canada. He is acclaimed as a finger-style guitar virtuoso and legendary folk singer.

His musical resume includes; violin, flute, classical guitar, folk guitar, mandolin, banjo, Appalachian dulcimer, auto harp, and more. He has performed in orchestral and solo settings on various stages for many years and is touring as a solo singer-songwriter, solo finger-style guitarist.

Radcliffe’s menagerie of stringed instruments now features the 12-string Spanish laud, which he plays fluently and naturally in his own inimitable style, as the Puerto Rican cuatro, a lovely and brilliant 10 string instrument.

Radcliffe’s performances are intimate and personal and touch his audiences regardless of the size of the venue.

Come out this Saturday (Dec. 19) at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Rd. Doors open at 7 p.m. with open stage at 7:30. For more info, go to sookefolkmusicsociety.com.
