Malc Gurnham is an excellent singer, plays quite a variety of instuments (most of them with strings!) and is a highly regarded solo performer. He also can be found running singarounds and acting as an MC at many festivals throughout the country.
He has played in numerous bands as well as being a solist, in both the “popular” and folk music scene. Currently, he is also is part of Malc and Gill, Glorishears Ceildh Band, and The Men In Black (the only Folk/60s band specially put together for a Folk Festival!). Latterly, he has also played in The Katherine Fear Band and appeared on recordings by a number of well-know performers, including the late Johnny Collins.
As well as performing, Malc promotes many folk events; he is Festival Director of Bedworth Folk Festival; the Organiser of Bedworth Folk Club, one of the longest running clubs in the country; runs his own small recording studio fat Sam Music; and has presented his own Folk Music show on BBC Local Radio.
Malc also performs as a duo, Malc & Gill, with Gill Gilsenan, and, not surprisingly with their backgrounds, they have a wide diversity of material, both traditionally and contemporary based, and ranging from clever harmony work to humour and even a serious ballad or two, performed either a-capella or with Malc’s pleasantly understated guitar accompaniment.
