He composed the audio book music for Bill Bryson’s best-seller ‘The Road To Little Dribbling,’ His Animal Alphabet poems are used as English Teaching Aids in 14 countries from The USA to Swaziland, his guitar instrumentals are used on numerous TV productions.

He supported Robin Williams at The London Palladium, and supported Steve Martin in the USA.

SUPPORT

Eric Sedge is a distinctive voice in the world of Folk and Roots music.

With stories and song from his native East Anglia, he embraces both traditional and contemporary styles playing Festivals and Concert Halls thoughout the country, along with appearances on Radio and TV.

Raised in a family of classical musicians, to a household with neither TV or car, it was perhaps inevitable that the boy would be shaped by the twin forces of melody and word. Books and music, forest and fields were his playground and now his inspiration.
