Sharpe star John Tams and Home Service at Beverley Folk Festival on June 21, 2014

Quote

He's been a Napoleonic War rifleman, an acclaimed songsmith and a rabble-rousing frontman and now John Tams is heading for Beverley Folk Festival. Ian Midgley reports.

It's best to be a moving target, says John Tams, that way they'll "never realise what a charlatan you are".

It's a strange thing to say for a man who has achieved so much in so many different fields during an illustrious career that has encompassed everything from folk musician to actor, songwriter and most recently impressive moustache-wearer.

But talking to the modest 65-year-old, whose band, Home Service, headline Beverley Folk Festival later this month, you get the feeling that, despite his considerable achievements, he's still, at heart, the same down-to-earth Derbyshire lad who left school aged 15 with no qualifications and went to work on the travelling fairgrounds.
