The story of the world around us. That is how singer-songwriter Chris Thomson describes his songs. He sings about small things, like his children playing in the garden, as well as the bigger issues that keep us awake at night.
Warm, personal. Sometimes joyfull, sometimes intimate and touching.
​Before becoming a singer-songwriter, Chris has long been a member of the Celtic music scene. He started his musical career in 1997 as a drummer in a Scottish Pipeband. As a drum sergeant, many years he gave drum instructions, wrote scores and performed with several Pipebands in small and large venues across Belgium and abroad.
​In 2012 Chris wrote the show 'The Dawning of The Day', where he combined pipe music, dance and folk. Meanwhile he learned to play the Bodhran and increasingly started picking up the instrument he played since he was a kid: the guitar.
​It was with the former group 'Clan Thomson Celtic Gathering' that Chris focussed on singing folk songs. When the group was terminated, he decided to continue as a solo artist.
