Ian Bartholomew

Ian Bartholomew is a native of Hartlepool and although he’s been playing guitar since his teens has only come to performing on the local scene within the last 10years. In that time, he has performed solo, in duo’s and most recently the last few years with Teesside Folk outfit Peg Powler who released their debut LP ‘Northern Lines’ in 2016. In 2017 performance highlights included shows with Mercury Music nominee Katherine Williams and Neil MacColl (son of Ewan) and with Author and Historian/Musician John Thomas from the USA at Decca’s home of recording Walthamstow Assembly Hall. Most recently he has supported Folk Horizon winner (BBC Folk Awards) Ewan McLennan.
Ian takes inspiration for his songs on many themes including birds, old guitars and dodgy promoters! No subject is off limits!!
