He comes well heralded, this Australian singer and songwriter, William Crighton. His debut album William Crighton from 2016 was greeted with critical praise, as are his live performances. The Tønder Festival audience has something to look forward to, if we are to believe these lines written by a reviewer in The Australian newspaper on a William Crighton concert in Tamworth in Australia: “Once in a lifetime, a concert exceeds all expectations, and seizes you with its elegance, majestic songs and the quality of the material. This concert demonstrated the ability of music to touch heart and soul.”

William Crighton’s deep vibrato voice links folk and rock, and as a storyteller he often reaches subterranean, dark, even spiritual levels. His latest release is the single Hope Recovery (Talking To God) with a version of the Neil Young classic After The Gold Rush as a bonus track. This is his only Danish festival in 2018.
