I love a bit of reggae and also folk I remember as a small child finding an old LP of Irish folk it was called Green something but as a budding 14 year old I loved the whole sound, and this guy has stayed true to his roots. I find his music uplifting calming and pure. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically superb and the music is fantastic.
