Winner of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards “Best Live Act” Award 2001

Vin’s career has spanned over 40 years of constant world wide
touring which must make him some kind of elder statesman of folk. His
songs were inspired by the folk tradition at the beginning of his
career, they still are but have transformed into gritty social comment
and life observations. He is renowned for his hilarious intros but for
him his song lyrics are the crux of his performance.

“Vin cuts through the bull, grasping those he meets firmly by the
hand and shaking them up with a dose of laughter and tears. It’s a
true gift to be able to make us laugh and squirm at the same time, but
Vin does both. He should be prescribed on the National Health.” –
English Folk Dance & Song Society

“Every budding singer-songwriter please take note: attending a Vin
Garbutt concert is now mandatory before your first public performance.
Garbutt is the undisputed master of communicating with an audience.”
– Penguin Eggs Magazine, Canada
