Songwriter M G Boulter appears as part of a WagonWheel Presents… event in Sheffield tonight.

M G Boulter is a songwriter and musician who currently lives on the Thames coast.

His latest full-length album, With Wolves the Lamb will Lie, came out in  in 2016 and was named by the Daily Telegraph as one of the best folk albums of that year.

He has also worked alongside many artists and has been involved in The Simone Felice Group, Emily Portman’s Coracle Band, The Duke and the King and Blue Rose Code, as well as his long-time partners, The Lucky Strikes.

In the late summer of 2017 M G and Birmingham string quartet The Froe met at the Fishermen’s Chapel by the Thames Estuary in Essex to record songs that were to become the EP Blood Moon.

The main chapel was cleared to make way for microphones and mixing desks and the songs were gradually brought to life among the clacking of trains from the London-Southend railway line and the hubbub of the chapel’s community gatherings, all of which are apparently captured on the recordings if you listen close enough.

The songs are described as vignettes of seemingly unexceptional lives that carry universal messages.
