Born in Sussex, Jimmy Lee’s life has been one long adventure. He started his musical career in the folk clubs of London, but really found his distinctive voice in the folk/country style he encountered in his travels through America.
“Not many artists get a standing ovation... Jimmy Lee did ... twice! at the ‘We Folk Club’ Edinburgh and ‘The Sail Loft’ Portsoy.” Pete Heywood (editor retired) Living Tradition Magazine
23 April Stuart Forrester
Stuart Forester is a Cumbrian born folksinger of the highest calibre. His arrangements of traditional songs and beautiful original pieces have made him a draw in the London folk clubs and the wider folk scene. Not only an excellent guitarist and singer, he plays a mean dulcimer. His album ‘A Yard of Ale’ was voted album of 2013 by Fish Records ahead of the likes of Martin Simpson and Chris Wood.
30 April Graham Carter
Equally at home singing well known Standards, tragic Child Ballads, Sea-Shanty’s, Negro Spirituals, Blues or his own compositions in the Traditional style, he has an uncanny knack of pleasing an audience which always stands him in very good stead.
