Folk music is storytelling. Storytelling is poetry. Poetry is songwriting when you can’t play the guitar. Collecting stories of people and places and putting them into song is what I do. I’ve met every type of person there is to meet, especially through working over the last decade. These are their stories, the stories of the street.

Scottish by default, but Catalan by location, Louis has searched the barroom floor for all traces of a decent folk song. Influenced by The Pogues, Hamish Imlach, Matt McGinn and The Corries, to name but a few, Louis has set out to continue the grand tradition of the storytelling musician.
His first collection of songs ‘The Cheap Part of Town’ is now available on all platforms.
