Richard Skelton

Born in Lancashire, Richard Skelton’s work is informed by landscape, evolving from sustained immersion in specific environments and deep, wide-ranging research incorporating toponymy and language, ecology and geology, folklore and myth. To date he has released over thirty EPs and albums of music, and has produced work for exhibitions, performance, feature films and documentaries.

Skelton often works with his wife and creative partner, Autumn Richardson. Over the past half-decade, they have collaborated to produce a significant body of work encompassing music, texts, film and artefacts informed by the upland landscape of south-west Cumbria. Together they edit Reliquiae, an annual journal of poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, translations and visual art.

Between 2013 and 2018, Skelton is participating in the Frontiers in Retreat programme – a collaborative project that fosters multidisciplinary dialogue on ecological questions within a European network formed around artist residencies.
