Chris Greve is a Celtic and Canadiana inspired musician who was born in London, England, grew up in Calgary, Canada, and is now living back in England.
He is based in London again but travels to perform in all the areas of the UK and beyond.
He started his musical journey at the age of four, which is his first recollection of owning a guitar. Since that time until this day, he has always had a guitar close by, although mostly putting music on hold while raising his family.
Starting up again later in life, he had a stronger drive and clearer vision of what path he wanted to take with his music, and he continues on that path today.
He spent many years recording and performing in Canada as a solo artist and with his band Claymore.
After relocating back to London, he is now focusing on composing and recording new original material, as well as traditional and well known Celtic folk songs.
Sharing stories through song
Inspired by the tradition and passion brought out through the songs and stories of Celtic folk music, Chris has developed his unique style, performing both his own compositions as well as contemporary and traditional songs within the genre.
