A native of Warrington, Cheshire, England-about 16 miles up the Mersey from Liverpool.
Cliff is as fine as an exemplar of the British folk tradition as you'll find this side of the pond.
He moved to the US in 1966 after serving an apprenticeship in the manufacturing trade.
Still working in the manufacturing industry since then, he has been a Mfg engineer for many years now.
His songs display a fine sense of humor, a bit of the British bawdy along with great vocal artistry.
Cliffs' booming bass-baritone shakes the walls as he breathes new life into an old chantey
and in the next moment render a ballad so tender it would bring tears to the eyes of an executioner.
A main stay in the folk music scene in New England for many years, Cliff has inspired countless people
to sing, learn songs and to join the community of folk music.
Cliff can found at "The Griswold Inn" Essex Ct where he has been holding fort for many years on Monday nights.
