Will Varley - The wandering spirit of folk
This singer-songwriter embodies the true meaning of folk, wearing his heart on his sleeve and travelling the length and breadth of the country - often on foot - to play his songs. Along the way he's gathered fans, radio plays and record deals, not to mention sold out shows across the world. Quick not to take himself too seriously, the singer is renowned for his witty, offbeat performances combining his quirky sense of humour with acrobatic stunts and genius song smithery.

Will Varley - He would walk 500 miles (and has)
Lured by cheap rent and good pubs, the singer moved to Deal in Kent in his early 20s. Most of his early work evolved from the corners of these pubs, meeting and performing with other musicians over a bottle of wine. From there he started his trek to become one of the most legendary folk performers in modern music. The trek started literally in 2011, when having released his debut album Advert Soundtracks, the singer embarked on a 130-mile walk with just a tent and guitar for company. Moving from London through the rolling Kentish countryside, he played gigs wherever they'd let him, and by the time he returned home he'd gathered a loyal following.
His shows have become increasingly anarchic, featuring surprise stunts and stand-up alongside emotional ballads that stay true to the heart of folk. After two subsequent albums, the cynical, political but nonetheless heartfelt music of this troubadour saw him rise steadily from supporting Frank Skinner to festivals like Bestival and Secret Garden Party. A second walking tour, this time a massive 500 miles, meant he was the obvious candidate to support The Proclaimers for 25 shows in 2016. After a slew of sell-out gigs and a show at the Royal Albert Hall, this wandering minstrel is one of modern folk's biggest success stories.
His live shows are much more than music, so catch the character of this folk music star with Will Varley tickets on StubHub UK.
