“Traditional Singer”

“Ian Bell writes with a rare clarity and passion. His love and understanding of the past may form a basis for some of his writing, but his characters arrive fully formed in the present. They are brought to life with a warm and vibrant humanity, links in a chain as it were, where every era is as important as the next , in which the past and the future are both well served.  I have had the pleasure of hearing Ian in concert, beautifully crafted songs delivered in  a strong clear voice.  He is a wonderful writer and performer.” – David Francey
