First and foremost a “troubadour”, Garth has performed all over the world.
For 25 years Garth was one of the Directors/Board Members of the Greenbelt Festival. He played at the first festival and was then a key member of the board that shaped its thinking and direction. It was particularly through Garth’s influence that it became an Arts Festival with a commitment to social justice.
Touring tirelessly for 40 years Garth has visited areas of poverty, conflict, deprivation, and disaster, prioritizing friendships with local people and bringing them encouragement, but always returning to Europe and the US with personal stories bringing to life media headlines, keeping individual’s stories at the forefront when newspapers have forgotten, and challenging the privileged to share, and to join the protest against injustice.
Founding the human rights charity Amos Trust in 1985, Garth worked for 26 years as its Director, in 2012 handing that role on to Chris Rose; Garth maintains a role with Amos as Founder.
Garth passionately believes that it is always time for people of all faiths to speak up and call for justice, reaffirming the dignity, rights and value of each human being made “in the image of God”.
Come and hear Garth talk and sing about his work – it will be a great evening!
